This is entirely true, but I can't really see the point of new
development in Class::DBI at this point. It's a great old workhorse and
I imagine I'll be maintaining production apps using it for a while yet,
but the entire reason for DBIx::Class was that Tony and I chatted and
came to the conclusion Class::DBI was basically unrefactorable and the
only way to significantly improve it was to make a fresh start. So I
did. The result now has a dozen active contributors and a vastly more
active community, so I guess by at least some metrics we succeeded :)
