Succeed, Precede, and Surround in Haml

Haml's design makes HTML and Ruby tricky to mix inline. But we have Haml helper methods to make it easier.

Here is succeed in action:

Developer at
  = succeed ', ' do
    = link_to "Hashrocket", ""

This becomes:

Developer at
<a href="">Hashrocket</a>,

Notice the comma at the end, outside of the a tag?

precede and surround work in a similar fashion, and do what we'd expect.
