Great work Angie!! The integration of DrupalDocs into this will
hopefully encourage contrib developers to really use/understand the
Drupal API - and also document their own modules!
Under 'Module root name:' the help text might want to add that for
modules that might get added to drupal.org it is good to reserve the
namespace at http://drupal.org/node/add/project_project (nothing worse
than writing a big module then finding the name is taken!). Also maybe
point out that modules can (I think) conflict with themes with the same
I'll try and hack out a 'module type' js/ajax autoselector when I find
some spare time :)

Ber: I have been thinking along the same lines. For these kinds of
toolkit modules/scripts (i.e. aimed at developers and/or site admins) it
would be great to work out a system where a tool (e.g. generating a
skeleton module) could easily share the same guts between a standard
drupal front end and a snappy sympal scripts command line front end.
Maybe this is possible already, but if you have any suggestions as to
how this could be wired together that would be great.
