I just read Mike Clark's blog entry,

   http://www.clarkware.com/cgi/blosxom/2004/12/29#pyUnitPerf

about a port of JUnitPerf to Python.  (JUnitPerf adds
two types of performance tests to JUnit: imposing a limit
to the time it takes to run a test and simulating concurrent
user loads and so forth.)

Is there a similar capability for Ruby?

(Our team has been in need of one for several years, but
it is a non-promotable offense to work on it and we just
don't seem to be able to muster the cash to contract it...)

Thanks,
