Instead of turning Class::DBI on its side, why not just turn the table
on its side?

Table: prefs
+----+-------------------+--------------+-----------+
| id | filename          | item_enabled | task_name |
+----+-------------------+--------------+-----------+
|  0 | /path/to/file.txt |            1 | something |
+----+-------------------+--------------+-----------+

Then the accessors will JustWork (TM)

Cheers, Dave
