Will do, though you seem to have found the blog entry I wrote about

Scaffolding still gives me the shudders (admittedly, the
resource_scaffold's improvement). I'm aiming to reach the point where,
if you're writing in a resourceful style, your resource controller
will look something like:

  class BooksController < ResourceController

Now that's what I *call* a skinny controller.
