Has anyone done anything *really* cool with Moose? I've decided to try and make another ORM tailored more towards Postgres and schema loading. I've discussed my ideas with others; and I think they will never be implemented in DBIx::Class, nor do I want to learn DBIx::Class to implement them myself. Point being, I'm considering using Moose; but, really disenchanted by the lack of mention of it. I never heard of it before this week, and after having a look at it, I think it brings Perl one small step closer to ruby. Which is a good thing.

Has anyone done anything with Moose worth mentioning? I'm not all that fond of the complexity of what should be simple tasks, like adding prefixes to the writer/reader, 'set_', and 'get_', or making those prefixes defaults. And, I generally think lowly of classes that reference users with such trivial needs to the source of the parent class. Is there any class-builder preferred over Moose, by anyone?

I see Moose fitting in pretty well to model a relationship between
columns => tables => schemas => dbs

Would you use Moose's type validation components? Or is there a better way to validate SQL datatypes, without really calling the DB?

So it seems now moose has a new class to remedy the problems mentioned. Moose::Policy, more information can be found at

      Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
