I suppose you could have something like the kicker gem running in the 
background watching for changes to .rb files and running the rake 
command when it sees one.

Not one that I know of. Xcode seems to ignore the system-wide settings 
for this (as it does with many other settings). I believe that Xcode is 
applescriptable enough to write something that loops through the open 
tabs and shuts them before quitting however.

Failing that, I know that you can reset the window state inside an Xcode 
project by deleting the UserInterfaceState.xcuserstate file found here:
