Check the DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader::Base docs, they have info on
adding additional custom base classes.  If you need to make one-off
mods to individual files, you can just edit the generated files
directly, below the md5sum line, and it will be preserved when you
regenerate the top half again (assuming 0.04001).
