Well, but having a simple script to create a basic directory structure
and config/app files very handy.
(Actually, what's needed is a gen generator. You create the dirs and
files you think you'll be using for 90% of your apps, point the gen-gen
script at it, and it creates a generator tool for creating that same set
of dir and files on demand. One of those phantom 'free time' projects,
I like the idea of how Rails plops down things you're (most likely)
going to use, but loathe how the ratio of needed/gee-maybe-but-unlikely
is so poor.
I guess YAGNI isn't in the Popular Buzz Terms list.

0.27.0 includes a 'nitrogen' script in the bin folder. It advises the
user to run 'gen', which is not provided.
