Or equally, you could have a Factory class that knows how to create
valid objects. This can be handy for generating test data, and
separates it from the class under test. (Some metaprogramming would
let you define that in one class and still have it available as
Zubin - I am still leaning towards the mock approach though, unless
you don't have integration tests for your app, in which case having a
model-layer test suite would add value. (But full-stack integration
tests + model unit tests would be better).
