I was exploring this issue a bit yesterday.  It have trouble with  
some Rails projects and I have not been able to figure out what  
causes it.  I now have one that it fails on myself.

Martin Hess has done a little research into when the command does and  
doesn't work and found the following scenarios to be problematic:

* Never works inside a def
* Doesn't work in views
* Works outside a def in
	- models
	- helpers
	- the application controller, but not in any of its children -
           this is very strange

These appear to be normal behavior for rcodetools though, and not  
related to my wrapping of the command.
