Gotcha! Yes, that's then totally valid - and one of the things that  
_should_ be simple, but isn't right now.

As you note - you can mess around with the model load order to ensure  
things work - letting you have everything setup at startup time - if  
that (the setup at startup time) is a significant advantage or not is  
of course your call - but messing with the load order obviously isn't  
nice, or extensible!

This is one of the things that is very much solved by the Bread::Board

No worries :)
