Subject Re: Any Interest in Betwixt Map Templates?
Date Fri, 30 Jun 2006 14:53:47 GMT
As it is not a core feature of an om mapper and has nothing to do with 
databases, I'd rather not include this in the generator. However, the 
template and instructions of how to add it could be added to the website 
in a "contrib" kind of directory, if that is ok with you.
