Fragmenting Loopback Models
This boot script will load module components on app initialization. Stick this file in server/boot. Components are looked for in the directory common/models/model-name. The script will load recursively any script from that directory, passing it the Model handle as a parameter (just like model.js loads). Conveniently, since this is occuring during the boot phase, those model scripts will execute at a later phase than model.js, meaning PersistedModel is already initialized and all peer model handles are already usable. Note - it's necessary for you to still maintain a model.js file for Loopback to load the model at all.
