I'm biased of course, but I think Dancer::Plugin::Database would be a 
worthwhile inclusion, too - should add no extra dependencies, and it's good to 
encourage people to avoid reinventing the wheel when it comes to handling 
their database connections.

(Having argued for my own module, it could also make sense to include 
Dancer::Plugin::DBIC for similar reasons, although that will have altogether 
heavier dependencies via DBIx::Class (unless that's shipped with Strawberry 
already, in which case it's no issue).)

Kudos for working on this, by the way; it'll make it easier for Windows users 
to get a decent Perl and Dancer setup running with no effort at all :)
