Nope, just an example ;) The name is untaken, AFAIK.

That's very useful to have in a framework. There must be a reason why
there are so many Lua testing frameworks, and something that was
'skinnable' would address that need for familiar/custom syntax.
It did occur to me later that context 'context' do ... end _is_
actually valid syntax, although not meaning what we want! That's the
kind of thing that can happen accidentally with DSL design..
I must look at Shake, sounds interesting...
