If you can send me a pointer to writing a controller base class, I'll 
certainly check it out. I didn't consider this an option, to be honest. 
I was trying to model it after XMLRPC, which is nice and easy to load 
with its :XMLRPC attribute. But I'm open to other possibilities.

On a totally separate topic (perhaps inappropriate here): DBIx::Class is 
awesome, but looks like it's missing a couple Oracle things for 
autodetecting sequences/triggers. Are you interested in Storage::Oracle 
patches for this?
