DateTime::Format::DBI only supports MySQL and Postgres, and as such is 

What I'm doing instead is adding a datetime_parser method to storage and 
writing an AutoInflate::DateTime component that'll pick up the column data 
type and setup inflate/deflate methods appropriately - have a look at 
branches/DBIx-Class/datetime in svn for my progress so far.
