a_mock_object['key'] = value

I'm trying to mock the Mechanize browser class, which allows form input to
be set by item assignment. I was hoping I could just call
should_receive('__setitem__'), but it looks like is prefixing the method
name with "Mock".

Something like what mox.py has. If you look at the mox.py source code line
429, you'll see what I'm talking about...


This issue aside, I really like Flexmock. It's simple, to the point, fits
exactly where I need it, and it's api makes it super easy to read!
