So. One thing that _should_ be possible is to build your mini-apps as
plugins. In jifty, a plugin can provide models, actions, templates,
notifications and so on (look at the Authentication::Password) plugin.

It should be possible to have a "MyMiniApp" application and to write
each of your features as a plugin, so that you could eventually combine
them into one giant master-application
