in thread DB persistence framework for Perl Classes

I have no problem with you reinventing the wheel if you've already studied other wheels. It's now clear that you haven't. Please study Class::DBI. Do not reinvent it without first figuring out exactly why it won't work for you.

And it's not your time I care about (very much). It's the time it'll take the next guy to sort out your tiny implementation from the others that are on the CPAN. You waste everyone's time when you upload stuff that could have been done so much easier, had you just taken the time to know what already exists.

The SQL used by Class::DBI is in fact portable to that list I've already given. Please to not be confusing issues here.
