Just some thoughts on the CPAN module to be written ...

We kicked around a few ideas last evening, but never really
came to a final resolution on what the actual project will
be.  Seems like there were a lot of application ideas presented,
but not many actual usable module ideas.

So perhaps we could think of dividing our efforts into 2 parts
one: an appication, and two: a generic usable module.

My personal preference is a module.  My proposal is one
that I mentioned to a few people at Rock Bottom after the meeting:

a Wrapper for DBI.  I've gotten a good start on this, but it's
really a mess and needs TLC.  Anyone that's coded with DBD
can relate to it's shortcommings, and how much code it can take
to get simple things done.  The module I propose is a wrapper.

    Current DBI Way:
    my $SQL = qq^
        UPDATE sometable SET
           somecolumn = '$input{somevalue}',
somecolumn = '$input{somevalue}',
somecolumn = '$input{somevalue}',
somecolumn = '$input{somevalue}',
somecolumn = '$input{somevalue}',
somecolumn = '$input{somevalue}',
