Conditionally Colorful Test Unit

I like to use the redgreen gem to make my tests colorful, but hardly want to make this a hard requirement to work with the project, so I tend to add this one-liner to the top of test_helper.rb – now I get red and green output but the other guys on the team don’t have to deal with installing the gem.

begin; require 'redgreen'; rescue Exception=>e;end
