rails on cygwin 0

finally it works out of the box: update cygwin, run "rails blah", then "cd blah" and "script/server" and voila! ruby 1.8.4 and rails-1.0.0 *gasp*

well, now if you really want to use it, you also need to fix incompatibilities of rails-1.0.0 with rake-0.7.0, so cd into /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.0.0 and run "for i in `find . -type f`; do grep inline-source $i && echo $i; done" and fix all occurrences of << 'option option' with << 'option' << 'option'.

but that's just details, right? who cares about those little things? oh the joy!
