Lets not start debating on how feasible or not RoR is. :) 

Lets see what RoR can do for Drupal. Lets just look at it and learn from it. 

RoR had this particular issue (layout of the files) very well thought out. 
Indeed very much focussed on development, but we are discussing this on 
development at drupal,org, so why not focus on that. The whole layout issue, 
after all will not even be noticed by Joe Average. Its purely a development 
issue, IMO.

Now about the route:
DrupalCOM will be restructured to resemble (kindof) that structure i posted. I 
have to work out some more details (better SVN repos support for separate 
sites on a multihost for one) but I beleive we should use that drupalCOM as a 
sandbox. Once we are truly happy about it, and once we found that it actually 
works much better we can propose this back to Drupal itself. This change is a 
too big thing to do in an issue on drupal.org. Besides: CVS does not allow us 
to write patches for moving stuff around.

It is still vapourware. I am now setting up the whole infrastructure, but am 
still not too sure about details as whether or not to keep all this on 
drupal.org (CVS is not particularly friendly for such a project) or to move 
it to a dedicated location (splintering the community is even worse IMO)

Docs are all scattered around on my Drupal wiki on webschuur.com. I will be 
moving this into the abovementioned infrastructure.
