[PhillyOnRails] refactoring controllers

Hi everyone,

I'm looking to extract one scope from my controller into another
controller.  I think I'm missing something design-wise, so I
would appreciate some help.  Here are the options I see so far:

1) Create another controller.  I tried this approach and called
redirect_to() to the other controller.  What I dislike about this
approach is that it sends a 302 back to the client, and generates
another request to the web server.

2) Put it into model.  Aside from the fact that this seems
wrong, I need to restart rails whenever I modify one of our
classes in model.  Is that normal btw?
3) Put it into our library outside of rails.  I dislike this
again b/c of the restart.

I found some useful ideas from this page on refactoring
controllers, but my question still remains:

Any help is greatly appreciated.  Best, -Chris
