Right, there is no all in wonder solution (i don't know a single real  
world app that started with scaffolding), thats what i tryed to say...
So instead of hardcoding CRUD like Maypole did (even Simon agreed  
that it was a bad bad idea), we just give you a simple to use api  
with examples...

We don't make any philosophical decisions for you, you are free to  
choose our code generator, some third party's code generator or some  
base class to inherit from.

And i'm sure there will be more specific components to choose from in  
the future, like base wikis, journals (already in trunk), forums...
