This was a really awesome episode. Starting with a bare bones app and plugging in modules when I need them makes more sense to me than starting with everything but the kitchen sink then pulling out (in a sort of error-proned way) what I don't need. I am new to Rails and I was curious why Rails has --skip-[module name] options when creating a new app rather than --include-[module name] options. Now I understand why I've seen discussions on some blogs about Rails becoming too "big". Now I know (thanks to this episode) that's not the case; Rails is just delivered that way.
