That's not generally how one would use mocks, although I suppose it's  
possible. Why not just go ahead and define the missing classes? You  
can write the methods to return canned results until you're ready to  
create the real implementation.

Also - assuming you're using Rails - you can put concrete mocks in the  
test/mocks/development directory which will then override the real  
implementation when running in development mode. Personally, I think  
that's dangerous, but the option is there.
