loading libraries and models from within a model

It's easy to load models inside of models similar to loading them in a controller, but once loaded you must instantiate them (unless all you want to access is static members/methods). You can use the following from inside a model:

Code:
$this->load->model('SomeObjectModel');
$object = new SomeObjectModel();

You get this functionality because when the controller loads a model, it also assigns references to all it's currently instantiated objects. In the example above, you're using an instance of the Loader class which the is referenced in the controller with
Code:
$this->load
.

Given a non-trival schema, I can see many places how you'd want to access an model object inside another model.
