ACCEPT_CONTEXT is a Catalyst model initialization feature, not a  
general perl feature.

Inside model code, nothing will call anything on modules you load  
yourself.. So when you call $some_class->new, then you're just calling  
$some_class->new, and you need to take care of it yourself if you want  
to pass $c down. (Although passing $c down is a bad idea, as your  
modules are then entirely aware of and tied to Catalyst - it'd be  
better to extract the things you need and pass them individually).
