Rule of thumb: If it would have been a class method in CDBI code it probably
wants to be a resultset method in DBIC.

As I noted in my initial reply to the OP though, I'd probably override
insert+update on my user object to call an _add_pw_to_used_list method or
similar; whether that then calls a create_limited resultset method for
usedpassword or handles the logic itself doesn't strike me as that important.
