Plugin for personal messages system?

Hi all,

I'm kind of surprised there is no maintained plugin which can get me
out-of-the box personal messages system.

The only two close things google cames up with is
http://github.com/psergi/acts_as_messageable/tree/master plugin (I
would love to have some generic views also created for me, but this
one doesn't seem to offer that).

And pretty old tutorial http://www.novawave.net/public/rails_messaging_tutorial.html
.

And that's it.

I guess my only option then is to cannibalize some other open source
project to get required functionality, but that is also on the verge
of "better to write my own"?

TIA,
Evgeniy
