Using the html5 boilerplate and rails 3

I am experimenting with using the html5 boilerplate with rails 3.0x. It is an interesting setup. I am using Russ Frisch's html5 boilerplate template, but updating it to use the latest boilerplate code.
It seems to be a pretty nice way of getting your css and js ducks in a row. Over the next few days I need to see how it handles having jquery mobile in the mix. I am also not 100% sure how to use a some sort of grid layout template (like 960 or 114opx) with it. Or even if you should!
We shall see.
