Add support for specifying max magazine slave count via SPORK_SLAVES_COUNT environment variable.


I implemented a version of this feature in a situation where I was using JRUBY which forced the magazine strategy and our team loads some test data into the test database as a part of loading spec_helper.rb.

Having multiple spork slaves caused problems because both slaves tried to load the test data into the test database and caused conflicts. We needed to force it to a single slave to make it work.

This should be an environment variable, or command line switch or something.
