That depends on how we do the model/delegate matching mentioned above. 
As stated above, I don't have a solution, yet. If you have an idea, let 
us know. I can imagine generating some C++ from such code that does the 
model/delegate matching at run-time via the metaobject system. That way 
we would support var models.
