This reverts an earlier commit which had unintended side-effects and …

…provides a cleaner alternative.

With test/unit being required rails apps trying to run ./script/runner would also
attempt to erroneously run the test suite, and could result in failure of cron jobs
that used the script/runner and specified an environment to run in.

It is better instead to:

  include Test::Unit::ActsAsDeleted

in your test helper.

This reverts my earlier commit : 69910d8

This was developed with Test::Unit in mind. Not sure how well it works with rspec.
