I agree, I'll probably move to DBIC after the app is up and running. That's 
the great thing about MVC, right? :)

In the meantime, the solution does seem to require that Catalyst::Model come
after other base classes in @ISA.  But new() must be Catalyst::Component->new()
and COMPONENT() must be Catalyst::Component->COMPONENT.

I've attached a fairly straightforward solution to the problem.  It's a new
model class Catalyst::Model::Existing.  It provides a completely generic
and safe way to integrate existing model classes into Catalyst without the 
headache I just went through.
