I don't believe Class::DBI can handle this, but I'm open to other list
members telling me I'm wrong.

I *do* know that DBIx::Class does handle this; just build a custom base class
that doesn't include the PK component and you should get at least some
functionality - follow the link in my sig to get more info - and find the
mailing list so if you decide to try it we don't clutter up the cdbi list :)
