Just remember that there are certain features currently only  
available in CDBICompat that might be important to people: live  
object index, autoupdate, triggers, etc. Ideally some or all of these  
should make it to DBIC anyway (as optional components of course).  
Currently I'm not using any of the compat stuff, but I did for a bit  
before I had my code completely ported over. It was useful for that.  
And I have a feeling that if DBIC conquers the world (like it seems  
to have already begun to do), it will come in handy later on to have  
a not totally out of date compat module. So, splitting the  
distribution makes perfect sense, it would just be nice to not  
_completely_ ignore the compat one. :-)
