I just stumbled over this one too.

In the interest of not causing people to upgrade to 5.[56]x and go "WTF?!", it
might be an idea to upload a new version of C::M::CDBI::Plain to CPAN that
includes a note in the docs that says "Doesn't not work with 5.5+! Here is
a workaround:..."

If this is too much trouble, feel free to assign the Module to me, and I'll
make those changes myself. (And possibly upgrade the module to work natively
with 5.6, if it's not anything too black-magicy)
