Using AutoCommit => 0 is almost universally a bad idea, but is not
outright banned due to backwards compatibility reasons. In fact during
the many years of working with DBI and friends I have not seen a single
valid use-case for AutoCommit => 0 - every single time it was a case
of a developer misunderstanding SQL commit semantics..

The current DBIC behavior will always remain a warning only (and there
is an %ENV_based way to silence it). I.e. your AC => 0 based code will
continue to work indefinitely.

As far as the actual warning and corresponding documentation[1] - if
you can demonstrate a real use-case for AC => 0, we will consider
revisiting the issue.
