That's why I (and Dave B, I think) renamed Maypole's 'delete' action to 
'do_delete' :)  Saves a lot of aggro.

But the Maypole delete is supposed to automatically call the Class::DBI 
delete instead unless it's actually called as an action. It does that 
through an evil hack as it starts. Is the SVN version broken?

Cheers, Dave
