Sorry, message_spec.rb. And I was referring to:

       rsp.type.should == Rversion.type
       rsp.version.should == req.version

There was an article which advocated similar message passing
style, and I strongly disagreed with it. I'd prefer something
more idiomatic, like:

        want rsp.type == Rversion.type
        want rsp.version == req.Version

I noticed the same thing in mine. I also noticed that ruby was
not designed to run stack machines. :( I like your solution.
