What about them co-existing? 

Look at Ruby on Rails. Part of its success is the code generation (aka agile 
web development) the other part is DRY (do not repeat yourself). The way you 
state it, RoR could not exist :)

We can generate code that is used as *scaffold*, used to have certain files 
made, directories set, data inserted, and yes, some default functions 

we can do that, on top of less repetition in our modules (oh, how i would love 
to see any node type get "view %type", "create %type" permissions by 
default). I see your point in this repetition thing, but its a separate issue 
from code generation.
