that's feedback I was hoping for :-)

My plans in short for aerogear-goes-errai:
     - exchange Jackson ser/deser provider with Errai databinding for 
     - create simple templated UI for entities
     - extend entities with base set of annotations
     - provide GWT compiler options in plugin (e.g. --style PRETTY)

Summary: produce a simple yet extendable app using Metawidget based 
scaffolding mechanism "fromEntity"

Step 1: revamp a generated Aerogear app to use Errai - see the delta
Step 2: analyze possible improvements / best practices
Step 3: introduce experience into Metawidget scaffold
Step 4: implement forge commands for controlling generation/update of 

Timeframe: Jan, 2013

It would be great to have you provide input e.g. on step 2, experience 
is key in this step - and that's not what I can provide yet.
