	There is not an app generator yet. I have it almost done but not  
released yet. So depending on which versions of merb you are using  
the way to start a new app is to copy the examples/app_skeleton from  
the merb gem to somewhere you want it to go. If you are using the  
latest merb from svn(highly recommended) then I did check in the app  
generator but there is a weird bug where it doesn't copy all the dirs  
and files from the skeleton. So if you are using trunk then look in / 
lib/merb/generators/merb_app/skeleton and copy it from there.

	I will have the generator working and checked in in a few days when  
I get ready to release the 0.0.9 gem.
