    I find code like this pretty cringe-worthy. If you set RaiseError and HandleError, you can have something this simple:

    sub get_values {
        my $dbh = get_connection('databasename');
        return $dbh->selectall_arrayref(
            'SELECT * FROM table_name', { Slice => {} }
        );
    }

    Isn't that much nicer than 25 lines of code? I'm also not keen on returning flags for errors, you'll just have to write lots of code to check, just die if something bad happened a
