Hmm.. my problem with things like Class::DBI is that OO and Relational 
are not the same paradigm.

But you are probably talking more general data persistence, which can 
optionally use a DB or similar.

If you have just your local code talking, reading/writing to this data 
storage, you should consider using a file system with directories and 
something like Storable (fastest of the serialisation code).

The performance will be far greater than any other solution.

There is two downsides though:

	* No indexes (although there are ways of doing this, eg: 
	* Not standard with other code (eg: if you want to mix Java and Perl 
accessing same data)
