I much prefer the "copied code" over an unintelligible "do_magic_here()"[1],
precisely because scaffolding should be a starting point.

With basic CRUD in place, it's easy to extend/change the MVC, rather than
having to "guess" how do_magic_here() does it, or how to do it from scratch.

[1] Yes, I'm looking at you, rails' "scaffold :classname".
