I’m still trying to wrap my head around the idea that the new rails asset pipeline is supposed to ‘put things where it should be’.

Perhaps, I haven’t got it yet, but how is it that putting your images, stylesheets and javascripts into a single ‘app/assets’ folder from its natural boxes of ‘public/images’, ‘public/stylesheets’ and ‘public/javascripts’ any way of an improvement?

Could someone shed some light on this?
