Good idea. There are still numerous issues I think need to be sorted at the core, but a lot of functionality could come in the form of bolt-ons. My only issue, is the complex setup to ensure everything you need is in one place (unzip some, SVN some more and GIT the rest), and the complexity with updating multiple projects. How about even deploying extensions as gems (still doesn't solve updates, but one step at a time...) and requiring them in a environment file (like the Rails 2.1 gem handler)? http://ryandaigle.com/articles/2008/4/1/what-s-new-in-edge-rails-gem-dependencies I've got a number of useful tool extensions I've built, including text manipulation (upcase, downcase etc), truncation, redirection and so forth. Could be persuaded to OS them...
