What would you recommend when it comes to the /spec/vcr directory and version control?
I imagine it would be pretty safe to ignore the directory, because the cassette files would be generated on the first test run for each checkout of the repository (assuming you use record: :new_episodes)
On the other hand, if you're communicating with an unreliable server, it could be a pain to re-record the interactions correctly.
