We've gone to lengths to make sure that only the barest minimum of code
gets dumped into your modules with the generators. In the Jifty mindset,
template code is bad. Template code == Repeated code. And repeated code
leads to bitrot. And bitrot leads to headaches. And I don't know anybody
who likes headaches.
