First - hey Carl - I am waiting for you to approve my design before commiting.

This is in plans - but not immediate - first I need to have an overall
api design.

Hmm - I don't understand that question - it only adds one method to
the standard Select box.   The name is now Select::DBIC

That's a good idea!

Now I think populate_from_formfu and fill_formfu_values should be
methods of the form - this way we could subclass it later.  So
HTML::FormFu::DBIC will be a subclass of FormFu with those additional
two methods.
