the VirtualModels branch really expects database-like models. To create
a non-database model, you really just need to provide default ::Action
superclasses for your model class's standard set of operations and a
::Model baseclass for your model type.

I recall that Sifty, a sample app in the Jifty repo started down this
path, though I've never played with it.
