I need to make a config object (a static, unchanging object created
preferably at the application level) available to not only certain
models but other housekeeping objects as well.
I have a config object that is created once and remains in that state
for its entire life so I want to be able to access this object
everywhere where I need it as it is quite large and recreating it more
than once in the same process would be wasteful.
So far I am instantiating it in application.rb but is this the right
How can I refer to the main application object from within a model?
What is the best way of getting at this object?
