Sorry, Chris.  I probably sound like a broken record--UCSC, UCSC, UCSC....

As I hinted at in the last email, simple Rose::DB::Object (my preference,
faster) or DBIx::Class based classes could be set up for the various tables
of interest, with the possibility of adding functionality by simply adding
methods to the generic ORM classes.  This would be relatively quick to
develop I would think and pretty easy to maintain.  If I get a chance in the
next few days, I can put together a quick set of classes for accessing some
of the common tables.
