We already had this conversation on cdbi-talk.

It boils down to: your questions strongly indicate to me you haven't read
the code, and don't actually understand the architecture I'm aiming to
create. I am *not* preserving the API, I'm merely emulating it - the fact
that the emulation code is rather simple is down to the DBIx::Class API
being flexible, not down to it being a direct clone of Class::DBI.

Also, I actually quite like the Class::DBI concepts; my main aim is to make
general views and resultsets should be as easy to set up and work with
as tables and records currently are, and to enable the addition of caching
etc. in a much cleaner way than is currently necessary.

And once again: DBIx::Class is, so far as I'm concerned, a research project
for the moment. My approach may not work - but I'm having fun trying out!
