I've looked at the list of Ruby applications.  It's about what I'd expect
from a framework.  Some very nice but almost uniformly lightweight web-based
applications.  Shopping carts, e-zines, content management systems.  EXCEPT
for the user interface, few of them would tax the abilities of even a junior
RPG programmer.  Maybe the follow-me map application, I don't know.  But for
sure there isn't a single batch balancing application among them.

Actually, we could test this pretty easily if somebody has a DB that is "RoR
ready" (by that I mean the names of the tables and such).  Supposedly then
RoR could generate the appropriate CRUD applications that would allow us on
this list to "take it for a ride".  Of course in the real world CRUD apps
only go as far as what the customer doesn't see and can usually only be for
internal use, but it would be a good start.

I am guessing RoR works off of foreign key constraints and the like to
determine the relationships one table has to another.  Does anybody have
such a db with a decent amount of complexity that they could post the
structure of to this list?
