Not so crazy as you might think. If you check out Anything3D.com you'll find just that. The software I use can be used to create 3D Virtual Objects (as seen on my website) and they sell a big motorized turntable that you hook up to you studio lights and camera (for about 3 Grand...) and it does all the shots automagically with the model holding pose.
If I could find enough models interested in doing it and in coughing up some upfront $ i'd get that setup in a heartbeat!
