[CDBI] Dealing with non-required primary keys

I think your subject reveals your trouble: "non-required primary
keys".  There is no such thing.  It seems what you are  worried about
is locking into a single RDBMS by having to declare "sequence" or not
and that the code written to not do this is not good enough.   I
believe Class::DBI::Loader will set up autoinc PKs correctly   based
on the RDBMS specified in the dbi connection string but it is using
the code in specific drivers.

It seems your solution would be to patch the specific drivers for each
RDBMS you want to use so they work.
