Just FYI, version 0.06 of Dancer::Plugin::Database has just been released, 
incorporating two new features, courtesy of Igor Bujna - thanks Igor!

The changes are:

* the ability to provide parameters to be passed to the DBI->connect call, 
  e.g. RaiseError or AutoCommit
* the ability to provide a list of queries which should be performed 
  immediately upon connection to the database.

An example configuration block, showing the new dbi_params and on_connect_do 
settings in use, is:

            driver: 'mysql'
            database: 'test'
            host: 'localhost'
            username: 'myusername'
            password: 'mypassword'
            connectivity-check-threshold: 10
                RaiseError: 1
                AutoCommit: 1
            on_connect_do: ["SET NAMES 'utf8'", "SET CHARACTER SET 'utf8'" ]
