I don't know about you guys, but I'm starting to be overwhelmed by the 
recent proliferation of web frameworks for ruby.  I mean, this is really 
cool and all, but there's a point at which it becomes difficult to 
digest everything.  I sometimes feel, after learning how to use one of 
them, as if I've just bought the latest and greatest gadget, only to 
learn that the Joneses already bought next year's model :-)
