My 2 eurocents are: you should build your catalyst model classes as 
"wrappers" around regular cdbi classes (maybe a better adjective would 
be "adapter" ?).
I have developed under Catalyst since about 5.30 and I've seen this 
point raised up more than once in the mailing list(s). I think that the 
independence of model classes from catalyst itself is largely 
understressed in the Cat docs.
