This is the first review I've ever written without actually having used the module.
I just wanted to mention that while doing some reading on a flight, I came across two recommendations for using Rose::DB in two different Oct 06 Linux magazines, Linux Magazine and Linux Pro Magazine. In the Linux Magazine article, Randal Shwartz (Merlyn on Perl Monks) says about Rose::DB both that it's "heavenly sent" and when seeing its performance "my jaw dropped". He also gives some nice history on CDBI and mentions DBIC. Looks like he's planning on writing a second article about Rose::DB in next month's issue.
In the second article, in Linux Pro Magazine, Michael Schilli, a software developer at Yahoo, writes "You may remember me talking about Class::DBI, but just recently a new, and far more exciting framework was released: Rose."
Given that there are no ratings for Rose::DB currently, I thought I should mention these two articles.
