Set up a project for use with autotest

Unlike previous versions of RSpec and ZenTest, as of RSpec 1.0.3 and ZenTest 3.6.0 no special setup is necessary. You can remove any rspec_autotest.rb files that you previously installed (as described in "Setting up autotest (with ZenTest versions prior to 3.6.0)").

The only prerequisite is that your project should use parallel lib and spec folders.

You can start autotest using:

autotest

Tweaks

No special tweaks are necessary, unlike in previous versions.
