I have a litle big problem with $subject. The Model::DBIC handles 
password fields as a standard field when creating or updating rows. This 
is good for creating rows, but not for updating, because the empty 
password field in the (prefilled) form means only 'dont change the 
password', not 'delete the password'. Prefilling the password field is 
very bad idea and not possible in most of case (with oneway encoded 
passwords, etc...).
So I think, the Model::DBIC requires an extra check in update procedure 
to handle this situation (and in this case, the password field will not 
be deletable, but I think, this is a smaller problem). What about this?
