in reply to LIMIT clause in Class::DBI

I've found Class::DBI::Extension on CPAN that should have what you're looking for. By the way, beware the Description:
THIS RELEASE IS FOR TEMPORARY DEVELOPMENT. Hope this will eventually be merged into Class::DBI and/or Class::DBI::mysql.
FWIW, I think it should be included in Class::DBI::mysql, or in Class::DBI provided some general implementation of the LIMIT idiom.

    Regrettably, the code notes that it the SQL it implements is specific to MySQL. In Oracle, for example, you use a "where rownum < ?" to limit results. Thus the code is not terribly portable (yet). It would be nice to see that added.
