Look at DBIx::Class::ResultSource in the current CPAN version:


       my $info = $obj->column_info($col);

       Returns the column metadata hashref for a column. See the description
       of add_column for information on the contents of the hashref.

It should work for most databases, I've tested it against MySQL,
PostgreSQL and SQLite.
It's not ideal - for example it only works when you have the same case
in the column names at the database and in DBIC metadata, but without
agreeing on case insensitivity this is all I was able to do.
