ActionController::Helpers::HELPERS_DIR and ´helper :all´ behavior

Hi everybody,

Currently ´helper :all´ is using ActionController::Helpers::HELPERS_DIR to find all the helpers of the app and load them. Right now is not possible to easily manage multiple helper dirs.

Would be useful (I’m thinking basically in plugin development and its helpers registration and detection) to be able to register multiple helpers_path in the same way we’re doing with view_paths in ActionView?. I’d like to hear opinions/comments about this before doing any patch…

I can't talk from experience because I've never included helpers on a
plugin but I agree with you: it would be a nice feature and mirroring
the view_paths mechanism would be a good start point.
