I'd love to try. I'll take a look this weekend. Thanks for pointing me  
at the starter modules, I hadn't looked at it yet.

The biggest stumbling block and learning curve with Catalyst is almost  
undeniably DBIC… Maybe we should consider a script that files tickets  
against any documents that reference it going forward. I mean sure  
it's useful but think of all the questions it generates! Why DBIC  
users pollute the Catalyst list all the time and some of the devs even  
cross post.
