Catalyst::Helper::AuthDBIC  just hit cpan.  The perldoc claims that  
it's fairly rough code, in fact it's *very* rough code, but it shows  
a way of doing helpers that have to mess with application  
configuration and other parts of existing application code.  It uses  
PPI to parse and modify your existing code.

Install  it and run auth_bootstrap.pl in your application root  
directory.  The most important bit of the pod is copied below:

=head2 BUGS

This is experimental, fairly rough code.  It's a proof of concept for
helper modules for Catalyst that need to alter the application
configuration, Makefile.PL and other parts of the application.  Bug
reports, and patches are encouraged.  Report bugs or provide patches
to http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Catalyst-Helper-AuthDBIC.
