Yeah, unfortunately, there's just no getting around using database-specific features for this sort of thing. Every RDBMS handles these specific issues differently.

The best thing, really, is to write yourself an InsertRow function which abstracts this stuff away, but unfortunately it's gonna have to execute different code for different databases. To my knowledge (and I just looked at the code on CPAN to make sure), Class::DBI doesn't even handle this all that well. Oh, well.
