I don't think you even need to go that far..

The DBIx::Class::User module will delegate any unknown methods onto  
your user row..

So you should just be able to add your check_password method onto the  
row object, without having a custom user_class..

Then you get the initial advantage I was promoting (i.e. your database  
model is internally consistent, and you can use check_password outside  
of a Catalyst context if you want to), and you have less code...
