No. I'd venture that a large part (in numerical terms) of all web 
applications built in Rails/Catalyst/x aren't public-facing web sites on 
the Internet, they are small, company-specific intranet/extranet applications.

The type of application may be quite similar, but each application itself 
is specific to the problem domain and so needs to be written each time to 
solve the actual problem. Rails seems to be a competent platform at build 
on when creating this _type_ of apps.
