In this example we have a single user table that carries a boolean bit for |admin. We would like to give the admin users objects (DBIx::Class::Row) the same methods as a regular user but also special admin only methods. It doesn't make sense to create two separate proxy-class |files for this. We would be copying all the user methods into the Admin class. There is a cleaner way to accomplish this.

You could also put all the user methods in a Role and use it in both places.
