I ran out of votes but this is HUGELY important to me. This whole "Rails plugin" thing is terrible. Lets move to gems and a peaceful plugin API to support them. If the WillPaginate guys can do it, so can you.

We are planing on making each app mountable in Rails 3.0 What that means is that slices/engines can be upgraded to normal standalone apps and just be mounted in the router.
validatable gem FTW

Testing... testing... testing... testing... Its easy to test rake tasks, but not as intuitive as testing a simple class. Also, extracting the class outside of Rails, say... into an async. procedure or interface is much easier with a Ruby class vs. a Rake task. Its much nicer to promote classes instead of some huge script.
