Well, the "helper" framework that Catalyst uses certainly would work:

	$ jifty action --name Login --base Jifty::Base::Login

which would create MyProject::Model::Login (the schema),
MyProject::Action::Login (stub), append code to the dispatcher or autohandler,
and a login _element.  You could even have additional switches after the --base
be read by the Jifty::Base::Login class for finer control.

That's one thing I did like about Catalyst: you could get some code to play with
pretty quickly.  The problem I found was that the documentation was spotty about
how to use that code... :(

I may take a look at how Dave Rolsky handles the roundtrip stuff in Alzabo.
