Yes, your head will be far too busy exploding trying to figure out just
how all the pieces of the DBIC puzzle fit together as the docs are rather
fragmented. If I had enough time I'd try and write a porting guide, for
programmers rather than programs. Having started as a Class::DBI
reimplementation Matt has headed off in new directions and even though
there's a compat layer it's not easy to get your head around how DBIC
works from a migrating user POV.

DBIC looks to be cool but it may not suit everyone. If your needs are
modest, CDBI seems easier to get into. Of course, your needs won't *stay*
modest so understanding DBIC is probably a good investment but the
learning curve is steeper IME.

But this is the CDBI mailing list and lets not descend into flame wars
please folks.
