So of course your first action was to mail here, so I could say:

Yes, that's something we've been wanting to fix for a while. I'd love for
you to put together a branch for 09 and refactor the DBIx::Class tests
themselves to use it as a template for future authors.

It would be really unfortunate to copy and paste this out of the main
distribution since the result wouldn't be testable without DBIC itself and
thus chicken-and-egg problems would make it impossible to use for DBIC
core, thus making the whole exercise pointless since it wouldn't track core
DBIC changes.

Do you already have a user on the cat or dbic svn?
