Right - and _THIS_ is why you implement your model classes outside of  
Catalyst, and bind them in.

If you are using Catalyst::Model::Adaptor to bind an external class,  
then changing the implementation of the model class to a mock class in  
your test suite is a simple case of providing some config to change  
the name of the class which is adapted...
