As an aside, I don't really grok #4. My big Catalyst project has been 
converting an existing Mason/Alzabo site to use Catalyst, but with the 
same model classes using Alzabo.

I've had to do very little to hook Catalyst to my model, beyond writing 
some thing adapter classes to make the Authentication plugin happy. What 
exactly do people put in their Catalyst Model classes?
