In Catalyst, where is the preferred place to setup custom queries for
autogenerated (via C::M::CDBI) classes?
In a package named exactly the same, so you can do __PACKAGE__->set_sql(), or
in a different package (ie. via C::M::CDBI::Foo->set_sql()) which must be
run after the setup stage of C::M::CDBI)?
