Namespaced model table name inconsistency

Reported by Stephen Celis | May 19th, 2009 @ 12:48 AM | in 2.x

Example you:

% script/generate model user/tag
      create  app/models/user
      create  test/unit/user
      create  test/fixtures/user
      create  app/models/user/tag.rb
      create  test/unit/user/tag_test.rb
      create  test/fixtures/user_tags.yml
      exists  db/migrate
      create  db/migrate/20090518233442_create_user_tags.rb
% rake db:migrate
==  CreateUserTags: migrating =================================================
-- create_table(:user_tags)
   -> 0.0022s
==  CreateUserFlags: migrated (0.0029s) =======================================
% script/console
>> User::Tag
=> User::Tag(Table doesn't exist)
>> User::Tag.table_name
=> "tags"


  1. Migration generates table name that accounts for namespace.
  2. Model suppresses namespace when assuming table name.

I'm happy to provide a patch, but what's the expected behavior? It seems to me that namespaces should persist to the table.
