Yeah, sorry that I haven't documented the plugin better, but I'm glad it
is what you're looking for. I was very happy that Jesse and Audrey had
already laid the foundation. 

Your help is very welcome. I wouldn't want to do anything to discourage
a contribution.

I've been busy with other work for the last week so I haven't been able
to work on this, but I hope to get back to it later this week or early
next. If you want to talk about direction and such, I'm frequently
available in #jifty during the day (US Central time) as zostay. If you
want to ask questions here or there, I'll try to answer them promptly. I
would love to see this move forward quickly.

It took me a while, but I got it going. The hard part was figuring out
that I needed to manually browse the __jifty/builder/model/ URL.

Interface-wise, this looks like exactly what I had in mind. When it's
farther along, I can add a view to produce the module skeletons I was
thinking of.

I'd be willing to lend a hand with ModelBuilder, though my experience is
modest. Could you use a lackey or henchcoder at this point?
