If I could upvote you twice, I would. The number of times I've had to argue with developers over how unique their situation is and why they've had to go and re-invent the wheel for situation X is disconcerting.
I think it's a pride issue and a difficult one to manage correctly if you want to keep active/engaged developers who believe they're tackling difficult/unique issues.
I personally think Rails is great but, frequently, it is not a sentiment that is shared amongst the people I regularly work with and they see it as too elementary (for some bizarre reason).
If Rails were a for-profit with marketing dollars I would suggest that there is a perception issue with the framework among developers, but I don't know how you handle that in the OSS world.
