Honestly, I don't have any experience using CDBI::Sweet, but it's a subclass
of CDBI, so I expect it should be very compatible with CDBI, if not fully
compatible. Unfortunately, it lumps a kitchen sink full of other CDBI
enhancements together into one module along with the improved support for
joins. It was also developed before CDBI v3.0.x, so I doubt it takes full
advantage of the refactoring that's taken place since then.
