That looks to be an entirely different beast; it's an SQLite-centered 
lightweight ORM, rather than a standard DBI handle with added magic.  It  
appears to be very much designed for use with SQLite, rather than with any 
database engine which DBI can be used with (which is, of course, pretty much 
any slightly-popular database, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, 

Dancer::Plugin::Database is intended for people like me who want to use DBI, 
but would like a few convenience features, rather than going the ORM route, I 
don't think ORLite would be a good fit here.

There's no reason there shouldn't be a Dancer::Plugin::ORLite, though ;)
