Just wondering what the best way to set up custom error logging in rails

I was thinking we would store errors in our database, with a generated
case #, so that our users could call our support and we could reference
the error they had.

I was wondering if this makes sense, or if there is a better way to do

If this does make sense, could someone point me in the direction of
someone who has already done it?

I can create one that we use ourselves, but I was just wondering if
there is any sophisticated ones out there for me to check out!

If you are referring to errors generated from your web site, you might
want to look at the exception logger plugin:

It logs all exceptions to a handy web based interface complete with
RSS feeds. It might be a good starting point.
