Carton is implicit dependency? #75

I want to add ecukes as a submodule and use it to write/run tests. Carton may be interesting in future, but I don't want to install it just to run ecukes.

Please break this dependency.

Carton is not required. You can still have Ecukes as a submodule if you want. But then you would also need to add ansi (https://github.com/rejeep/ansi) as a submodule so that Ecukes can find it.

Let me know if you run into any trouble with this set up!

It's not clear how to add a directory to the load-path before (require 'ansi) is called?

I'd like to use the default ./util/ecukes/ecukes test runner

This is a bit unclear (and annoying) how to do if you're not using Carton (which does this automatically). The way I solve it in Carton is to get the correct load-path before starting Ecukes.

You could try something like this. Create a folder called util. Clone Ecukes and Ansi in that folder.

EMACSLOADPATH=$(emacs -Q --batch --eval '(message (mapconcat (quote identity) (append (file-expand-wildcards "util/*" t) load-path) ":"))' 2>&1) ./util/ecukes/ecukes features

The reason for doing it this way is because Emacs overrides everything in load-path when using EMACSLOADPATH and not just appends it...
