I'm also using it on active projects.  I would agree with Perrin here
about using SQL.  I find it does work great as a simple ORM but when I
have more complicated queries I love how easy it is to use SQL
directly -- and I do think SQL is the best language for the complex

DBIx::Class has a lot of power, but I do like the simplicity of
Class::DBI.  Class::DBI's code is pretty easy to look at and
understand what's happening.
