Looks great and seems easy to use.

I imagine having the sql files in there would be good too. Also, what
about adding sample list/edit/save/delete functions for the admin
page, for a standard table that includes just an id column and a
single data column? Then beginners could see exactly how to start.

A suggestion not really related to the generator script: can search
and syndication code go the way of install/uninstall in the plugins,
and be handled by the Geeklog core? The plugin could then simply
provide an array of tables and columns that are to be queried in
search, and similarly for feeds, much simplifying development even
more. I sometimes still have a few problems getting feeds working
properly on plugins.
