In your original example, you seem to have blended together the
concepts of a Schema class and a Model class.  They are in fact very
distinct from each other.  Your "schema" class should "use base
DBIx::Class::Schema[::Loader];", and it should have nothing to do with
Catalyst or Models.

Your Model class on the other hand, should "use base
Catalyst::Model::DBIC::Schema", and have the config option
"schema_class" set to the classname of the Schema class above.
