At DrupalCon, a few of us had talked about how handy it would be to have a
module that automatically generated "scaffolding" for modules, both to help new
developers as well as to speed up the process of creating custom modules for
Drupal veterans.

As a result of a major bout of insomnia, I am pleased to announce that Module
Builder Module 1.0 has been committed to CVS, and even pretty much works! ;) You
can check it out at:


WARNING: This module was a lot of 3am++ code and regular expressions, which as
we all know is a deadly combination, so please be kind. ;)

There's obviously a lot more that can be done with this than what's there now,
but I figured I would post this anyway so people can see how it works so far.

Jeff Robbins also created a wireframe (which I tried to use as inspiration to
the extent that I could) of how he envisions this working in later revisions,
which you can see in my sandbox here (warning: PDF):


Anyway, enjoy!
