As I understand it $c is (until they change it) an application object -
so an object of class MyApp (for whatever app you are building), whereas
$self is an object of the class you are currently within (quietly
ignoring inheritance etc).  

So for actions in the main application class the class of $self and $c
are going to be the same - in fact they are probably the same object.
In other places in your tree this will not be the case.
