It seems to me that your database design (or the name of the 'id' column) is broken if you have non-unique ID's.

As for supporting this in the module: I'm not inclined to support something in DBIx::Simple that makes the value type returned dependent on the contents of the result set. That results in rather fragile code. You could just add a method, though:

# untested package DBIx::Simple::Result::Metaperl; our @ISA = qw(DBIx::Simple::Result); sub map_arrays_of_hashes { my ($self, $column_name) = @_; my %arrays; for my $row ($self->hashes) { push @{ $arrays{$row->{id}} }, $row; } return wantarray ? %arrays : \%arrays; } ... $db->result_class = 'DBIx::Simple::Result::Metaperl'; my %arrays_of_hashes = $db->query(...)->map_arrays_of_hashes('id');

To keep DBIx::Simple simple, I'm not adding a proliferation of variants; a vast number map_foos_of_bars permutations could be thought of and I'm sure there's they could all be useful in someone's code somewhere, but let's draw a line... :)
