I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is trying to figure out how to avoid having full mirrored dev, qa, and production environments. The methods taken with the cucumber integration is pretty sweet. That said, I don't have it working in production yet, so the jury is still out on the technical feasibility of the approach.
