Indeed. Just encountered an IsA feature/bug today and thought of
fellow users.  If you cant dig up the file, i can email it tomorrow.
Soorry I have not uploaded it to cpan .  Im in a race with my boss who
is using PHP and i do not wish to lose. I am always following list and
happy to help anyone and appreciate any feedback or help.

Now on to this feature/bug/caveat .  IsA does not support the set
accessor.  IE -- you say $class->set(%data) and any isa inherited cols
are silently ignored.  This from what i can tell is because isa makes
individual high level methods for the columns but no low level methods
which set uses ( ie attribute_store).

I think this may be a bug.  One possibe solution is to add some
"after_set_$column" triggers which set invokes.  Another may be to
override set. But this may cause issues. Anyone have any suggestions
or thoughts? Today, i jut used high level accessrs in a for loop as
workaround until i figure out what to do.

George, another thing you may bonk your head on is IsA may trump
ClassDBI Sweet's search method.  I think i fixed that and will check
tomorrow to make sure.
