[Dbix-class] What should DBIC objects stringify to?

Ah.  Thanks for setting me straight.  And, in terms of the original query

->find( {pk1 => 'someval', pk2 => 'someotherval'})

should work for finding a row with a multi-part key.  Yes?

Won't do. ->find wants the primary key(s) and returns a row, not a
resultset, which would provide the ->first. So it's either
->search(...)->first, ->single(...) or ->find( $pk )
