I'm a bit confused. Wouldn't simple renaming of the autogenerated
classes solve your problem here? If you want to specify a class name for
each table it would be even more work (typing-wise). Remember Catalyst
will pick up every module in C/ M/ or V/ as long as it has the "use
'Catalyst::Base';" line.
