The trick would be to dump out the "compiled" DBIC classes, app dispatch tree 
etc. in such a way they could be re-loaded off disk rather than all the setup 
logic having to run again. Grabbing the entire damn symbol table and 
Dumper-ing it to be eval'ed later is *sort of* how it'd have to work, although 
inevitably it'd be rather more complicated than that.
