DBICx-Deploy (0.02) ****

This is *&¢%ing hot, man. My only beef so far is that it silently does exactly what it's told. In other words, if you have a partial/manual Schema instead of one from Loader or a completely detailed hand-tooled version, you will get broken definitions. Obviously there is nothing that can be done about without wrapping back around the Loader and asking for two sets of DSNs (real + new); and that's probably outside the scope of this tool. It would be nice though if it croaked noisily before it wrote out broken SQL. Many first timers might have no idea what's going on and might drive up blind alleys for days trying to figure it out.

Otherwise, wow, this is just a great accessory.
