Better slug generation (essentially a to_param replacement)

Monkey Patching String

class String
  def slugify
    returning self.downcase.gsub(/'/, '').gsub(/[^a-z0-9]+/, '-') do |slug|
      slug.chop! if slug.last == '-'

In a model, or wherever

def to_param
  # Don't need the id here if we're looking up the model by the stored slug.
  "#{id} #{title}".slugify
