    i only skimmed that one first time past thinking "Well, it's a wee bit content light", but on second reading...

    Frankly, I don't start to think it might be a pidgin until the code in those blocks starts looking pretty damned unrubylike. Class methods are for introducing the weird scope you need to make your declarative style pidgin work. Perl libraries like Jifty::DBI::Schema do something similar, they just have a different toolchain and 'feel' to them because Perl's prototyping pushes the style in that direction.
