We've mentioned it a few times. There could probably be value in 
agreeing at least on a baseline syntax in common. I'm not sure it's 
possible though (Bikeshed and ReSpec are actually a lot closer in small 
details than they are in overall syntax). It also feels a little bit 
uncomfortably meta.

They're also JFDI projects that might not work all that well with the 
notion of standards :)

I've considered writing a Bikeshed mode for ReSpec to help people 
switch, but didn't get around to it.

Fare well Anolis, victim to the relentless progress of Web technology!
