in reply to Class::DBI mailing list meltdown

This Sebastian is a lead or the lead developer of catalyst, nowadays one of the most celebrated Perl applications. It is sad to see things like this happens.

I also kind of read a few about this story, and if I understood correctly, the main debate point on which those two experts disagreed was "Multiple Inheritance Vs. Delegation", I tried to search the mailing list myself but I failed to find any useful postthat will elaborate each developer point of view on the topic, and you know, I would really like to learn what they thought, without the rants, the flames and the insults.

Anyway, I am sure I will come accross the same debate elsewhere, and hopefully the discussion will be amongst experienced developers

[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
[Corion]: perldigious: That seems to be more the export and likely it's the recipients of that export that like the titles changes
[Corion]: ... "changed"
[Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
[Corion]: If you have whitespace in the column names in the database, whap the DBAs ;)
