Yes - one of the things I wanted to raise for post 1.0 is implementing
providers as models...the only thing Im not sure of (maybe Martin has
some ideas here) is how it would work with a canvas 'view' which has
multiple models (layers) associated. Certailnly it would work well
with attribute table views. Anyway I'm trying not to get distracted by
post 1.0 ideas now :-)

Yes sorry I should have realised that - its a good suggestion you  make..
