You've never implemented a saved search function that allows you to
'search within' a saved search?
You've never done a "view all posts owned by the selected set of users" link?
This sort of thing in DBIC just becomes
$posts_rs = $users_rs->search_related('posts');
whereas (so far as I'm aware, please do correct me if I'm wrong) it's a bit
more work in RDBO.
