Comment on "Layouts Ignored in Rails Controllers"

Well that did it. I'm surprised the explicit call doesn't override the filesystem contents, though.

According to the documentation, explicitly setting a layout will override any automatic layout choice for that class, but a parent class's layout will not override a child's layout.

If you want to explicitly extend a class's layout to all of its subclasses, you should be able to do that with the inherited method. The way Rails does it seems most flexible to me, though.
