Putting doc comments in the generated code is a good idea, but we part ways when it comes to where to document the "whys" - I prefer to document them in the generator, or the generator's rules, whichever is more appropriate.

But also it sounds like you and I tend to use generated code differently. You're doing it more "JUICE" style where you create a package and then the user includes that to handle all the boilerplate stuff based on some settings (or DB schemas or whatever) - then they take that project and use it as a starting point.

I tend to generate code from spec files, and the code is purely generated from those specfiles, including being regenerated when that spec file changes.

Most of my comment has to do with that latter method. I agree with you about a lot of your post, especially with the way you are using code generation. It's just that I don't typically use it that way. =)
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
