Thanks.  Is '$c->model('Foo')->data' what something like DBIC gives us, too?  That is, is 
a method named 'data' the convention?  That is, if code was given a "result set" (I think 
that is the right term) of a query that was made on one of the main standard model types, 
what would the list of records look like?

Does 'MyApp_create.pl model' have any built-in stuff to generate a blank ad-hoc model like 
you showed me?

Thanks for the help.
