acts_as_tree
============

Specify this +acts_as+ extension if you want to model a tree structure by providing a parent association and a children
association. This requires that you have a foreign key column, which by default is called +parent_id+.

  class Category < ActiveRecord::Base
    acts_as_tree :order => "name"
  end

  Example:
  root
   \_ child1
        \_ subchild1
        \_ subchild2

  root = Category.create("name" => "root")
  child1 = root.children.create("name" => "child1")
  subchild1 = child1.children.create("name" => "subchild1")

  root.parent # => nil
  child1.parent # => root
  root.children # => [child1]
  root.children.first.children.first # => subchild1
