I think I got something working like that but without using array
datatypes in the DB, if you're able to change the db schema you could
look at nicking code from inside
https://metacpan.org/module/Class::PINT to handle arrays nicely

I did a lot of messing around with CDBI back in the day and that was
one of my experiments (the module and I even got a namecheck in
Advance Perl  2nd edition, although I gave up on that avenue and moved
to DBIx::Class not long after)
