I've trimmed a lot of your post.  I won't address
every bit individually, but I'm also using
CDBI::plain.  I have been unable to get CDBI::plain
and catalyst to recognize my existing CDBI classes, so
I have all of my methods in my app::M::CDBI classes. 
I also don't have the code in front of me so I can't
provide source code now.  But I'd like to correspond,
eiher on list or off, sicne we iconoclasts are a dying

It's kind of a bummer that the catalyst examples are
all moving to a new ORM, just as I'm finally
comfortable with CDBI :-)  I'm also a little concerned
abotu finding kwalitee hosting that will have support
for DBIC, but that's an issue for later when the app
is finished.
