       Jifty::Util - Things that don't fit anywhere else

   absolute_path PATH
       "absolute_path" converts	PATH into an absolute path, relative to	the
       application's root (as determined by "app_root")	 This can be called as
       an object or class method.

   canonicalize_path PATH
       Takes a "path" style /foo/bar/baz and returns a canonicalized (but not
       necessarily absolute) version of	the path.  Always use "/" as the
       separator, even on platforms which recognizes both "/" and "\" as valid
       separators in PATH.

       Returns the root	directory that Jifty has been installed	into.  Uses
       %INC to figure out where is.

       Returns the 'share' directory of	the installed Jifty module.  This is
       currently only used to store the	common Mason components, CSS, and JS
       of Jifty	and it's plugins.

       Returns the application's root path.  This is done by returning
       $ENV{'JIFTY_APP_ROOT'} if it exists.  If	not, Jifty tries searching
       upward from the current directory, looking for a	directory which
       contains	a "bin/jifty".	Failing	that, it searches upward from wherever
       the executable was found.

       It "die"s if it can only	find "/usr" or "/usr/local" which fit these

   is_app_root PATH
       Returns a boolean indicating whether the	path passed in is the same
       path as the app root. Useful if you're recursing	up a directory tree
       and want	to stop	when you've hit	the root. It does not attempt to
       handle symbolic links.

       Returns the default name	of the application.  This is the name of the
       application's root directory, as	defined	by "app_root".

   make_path PATH
       When handed a directory,	creates	that directory,	starting as far	up the
       chain as	necessary. (This is what 'mkdir	-p' does in your shell).

   require PATH
       Uses UNIVERSAL::require to require the provided "PATH".	Additionally,
       logs any	failures at the	"error"	log level.

   try_to_require Module
       This method works just like "require", except that it suppresses	the
       error message in	cases where the	module isn't found.

   already_required class
       Helper function to test whether a given class has already been loaded.

       Generate	a new UUID using Data::UUID.

   reference_to_data Object
       Provides	a saner	output format for models than

   stringify LIST
       Takes a list of values and forces them into strings.  Right now all it
       does is concatenate them	to an empty string, but	future versions	might
       be more magical.
