Bear in mind you can (a) get the $dbh out of a DBIC model, (b) pass a subref
to a DBIC model to return a $dbh from elsewhere (this works in plain DBIC as
well but I figure you care more about the cat case). Between the two it's
pretty much always possible to mix and match DBIC and legacy/specialised
stuff and still have a single DB connection.

But hell, if it works for now, sorted :D
