No kidding :(

I just blogged about this (this example is on a DBIx::Class-derived class):  http://use.perl.org/~Ovid/journal/38356

One database table with 8 fields, two of which should be populated via triggers (but which were thoughtfully shoved into the ORM layer).  The simple object which was instantiated has 255 methods defined across TWENTY SEVEN classes.  It's insane.
