If your database is complex enough you believe you're at the "too much code" 
point you'll almost certainly have to switch to something more powerful at 
some stage, and probably the sooner the better. My work on join and prefetch 
support in Class::DBI::Sweet does a reasonable job of papering over the 
cracks, but it won't get rid of them.
