Amen. This was always my problem with Ruby on Rails. Everyone would show you this crazy-simple example of how they could build a RoR app from scratch in minutes. But if you start adding custom requirements (like, ohhhh... every real world app ever) and you can no longer settle for the "default" way that RoR wants to do everything, pretty soon that app takes just as long to build, and it's just as complex, as any app built in any other language.
