I only use Dancer::Plugin::Database to put my DB configuration where it should be - in your config files. It just cleans up a whole load of potential pitfalls - especially for it's support of multiple named database connections.
I consider it invaluable for that aspect alone.
It also comes with a nice set of "quick" functions (quick_select, quick_insert, etc) These features could be useful for a beginner without intimidating them, but they are powerful enough for an expert to use if they don't want the hassle of setting up DBIx::Class.
