I suggest you create


and 'use' it there:

	package MyAPp::Model::MySchema;
	use base qw/Catalyst::Model/;

	use MyApp::Schema::Main;

Where is it being required()'d? Why not just 'use' this at the top
of your model code?

Now, at this stage there's some heavy wheel reinvention going on.
Are you aware of Catalyst::Model::DBIC::Schema?

Is this for efficiency reasons?
