Large Seeds Jump to Story

It was a big improvement when rails included a default way of loading seed data into your database, but its still got a problem; the convention is just one seeds.rb file, that tends to get littered with all kinds of content. Enter this short little code snippet that makes the seeds.rb file load all the files from a seeds directory... so now you can have a directory of seeds that could match the directory of migrations, or your directory of models.
