It certainly is in rails, and in routes.rb:

I think that was a slightly exaggerated description of the situation 
that most likely arose from a bit of chinese whispers.

There is some code on my hard disk that I will be working on completing 
over the next few weeks. As it isn't on a branch it probably won't be 
committed before it is ready to go live though. It isn't a huge amount 
of code though.
