[kepler-dev] finding an effigy

I would suggest using the effigy for the model being viewed next to the
library... The main purpose of this effigy is to give hierarchy to window
managements, so that (for example), if you close a window, then all windows
that are conceptually sub-windows close...

In the GetDocumentationAction class, it asks the Configuration for an Effigy for the object you are trying to open the documentation for.  Since there is no effigy for an actor that is not yet part of a model, it fails.  Is there a way for me to add a ghost effigy into the configuration so that the documentation can be created?
