Thanks Tom. I can see now that I was a bit fuzzy on my question, whoops :)

We still use Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication to do the heavy lifting -- but
it's not supposed to rely on Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::Store::DBIC,
but rather Catalyst::Authentication::Store::DBIx::Class instead, right?

The syntax for "use Catalyst qw//" is that it prepends "Catalyst::Plugin" to
the beginning of any module you ask for unless you prefix it with a "+":

use Catalyst qw/

Is that the recommended syntax?

Would like to have a clean library with no deprecated stuff available to
fall back on. Disk space is cheap but that seems like saying I'll drive
around the countryside just for fun because gas is cheap. Trying "make
uninstall" didn't get me very far. Maybe there's a way to use ExtUtils to
create a packlist file...

Documentation? You mean... read? :) That's helpful -- I will return to pore
over those docs. Thanks!
