I've got a large project that I may be able to convert
to rails. The problem domain is a bit odd for most web
projects:

1) There is a single data model.
2) Each customer (~50), wants customizations to their
web pages.
3) 90% of the product is the same.
4) There are several components to the product.
5) Not all customers pay for each component.

If I use rails and create a "master" project. Do all
the main work as components, how do I structure each
of the customizations?

My question is specifically directed to how the
directory structure would look such that I don't move
any files around and if a model is changed, the impact
to each customer can be tested.

Each customer will also have their own test cases for
the customizations performed.
