I like the auto generation of those methods. That's something that we
have thought about and intend to add to Scenarios at some point in the
future. The huge advantage of Scenarios over the FixtureReplacement
plugin (if I understand it correctly) is that it gives you a way to
group and manage your record creation calls. So you can say you want
to use the Accounts scenario and it will load up your basic accounts,
transactions, etc...
