I think it's ok to work on trunk despite that rails is broken. That's
why I added the temporary rake task pre_checkin_without_rails

I'd say we comment it out and log a separate bug (I may have done that already)

I have a closed source one. I have already tried your stuff, and it's
working great in our local testapp.

However, I have found some problems regarding the packaging of the
generator gem and how things (don't) work when installed over a
different project. I'm looking into that, but will probably not have
anything to commit in a couple of days (busy).

I think we should rethink how we package the generator gem. I think we
should generate a plugin with all the secondhand generators underneath
it. More on this later.
