Thanks for this. I think it's pretty slick. I think the view name for  
the default project should be AccountSetupView, but other than that,  
cool. I'm just struggling with MacRuby and HotCocoa right now -- doing  
much more Rails, so maybe I'm the wrong person to ask. But the M ...  
as far as I can tell you only have the LighthouseAPi module that kinda  
resembles how models sometimes fit into MVC. Were you thinking about  
some models directory that contained classes that mapped to some kind  
of data modeling or persistence layer?
