[Catalyst] context in ::V::TT::new()

Somewhat off topic: It seems to me that it might be useful to have
some sort of context like object available at app start. Currently the
only place to store objects at that level is in MyApp->Config though
that seems unclean to me as objects stored may not be config related.
Another reason for some sort of app level object is to have access to
some debug methods (like $c->log->debug) before a request is made.

One of the next things on my list is to look into Catalyst plugins and
what they are capable of, so it maybe that I could achieve what I want
by writing one of those.

Would be interested to hear your thoughts.
