Well, yes, and no. Handel 0.99_0x are dev releases, so they're not
official yet. Once 1.0 hits, then yes, only released versions of
DBIx::Class should be required.

The same was true for DBIx::Class 0.6999x -> 0.07. In fact, some of the
changes in that release were to help out Handel 0.99_0x.

Yes. Handel 0.33 is the latest and greatest official version. For most
people, 0.33 is a good start. For those who are moving away from CDBI
and want to use DBIC, 0.99_0x is a good place to start development, but
I certainly wouldn't use it in production.

I requested a reindex of that dist. Looks like that solved the problem.

Interesting. I wonder if this has something to do with DBIC dealing w/
threads vs. commits/rollbacks. Could you submit an RT bug ticket so it
doesn't get lost in the upgrade.

I guess I should add that to the OPtional Prereqs mention...

The latter two are only required if you want to do current formatting
and conversion.

I would file an RT ticket on SQL::Translator about the XML::XPath dep.
