You are correct, as I discovered when trying to figure out why the
accessors I built with DBIx::Class::MooseColumns weren't getting called.
Is extending my result classes and doing validation/cleansing that way a
Hm, POD for DBIx::Class::Row suggests it may be:
This is the lowest level at which data is set on a row object, extend
this method to catch all data setting methods.
(of course it also says 'This method is used internally by "set_column"
which you should probably be using')
DBIx::Class::Validation takes a slightly different approach and extends
update and insert. I'll need to check if DBIC::Validation can do data
normalization. I don't believe it can. But it plus extending
store_columns may be what I'm looking for.
