Easier MetricFu with Metrical Jump to Story

When you add metric_fu to your project, you’re adding a ton of dependencies. Even if you’re only running metric_fu in your test environment, with bundler all those dependencies are going to get installed when you run bundle.

No setup or configuration required.
