I'm not quite sure what 'model classes' means in this context? I don't
think I want to override individual accessors; I think I want to
override whatever they inherit from (the equivalent of CDBI's get()
method). I just don't know where to read up about how to do that.

FWIW my entire DBIC code (apart from the application's usage) is below:

use strict;
use warnings;

package SU::Schema;

our $VERSION = 0.01;

# 2006-06-23 djh v0.01  Created

use base qw/DBIx::Class::Schema::Loader/;

my $dsn = 'dbi:mysql:host=cpepc210-2;database=scopupdate';

                relationships   => 1,
#               debug           => 1,
