#6503: Generated add/edit views through the console should not be controller

 == What I did: ==
 I baked basic add/edit/view views from the console for a new model, then I
 copied both controller and views to a new set of controller/views in order
 to build other screens of my application. I renamed the controller
 file,class and specified through 'uses' the model it should use.

 == What I expected to happen: ==
 I expected the new controller perfectly working, with links in views
 pointing to the current (new) controller.

 == Why it didn't meet my expectations ==
 The form is still pointing to the controller initially generated through
 console because the Form helper point to the generated controller based on
 Model name and not to the current controller

 == Possible Fix ==
 Specify to the generated view to use current controller.
 In branches/1.2.x.x/cake/console/libs/templates/views/form.ctp , pass a
 second url parameter to the form controller :
         <?php echo "<?php echo \$form->create('{$modelClass}');?>\n";?>
 By something like
         <?php echo "<?php echo \$form->create('{$modelClass}',
 array('url'=> array('controller' => \$this->params['controller'],

 This will simplify the copy of a set of controller/views.

 == Side effect ==
 This will introduce code sample of how pointing specific controller/view
 from a form that may be appropriate for beginners even if it's written in
