Sorry, just picking up on this now:

I'm already using DBIC elsewhere in my application and it seems silly / redundant to me to have to define the connect string in two different places in the config.  Seems to me it'd be far simpler to just have the config nominate which DBIC 'schema' connection to use and simply fall back to 'default' if none is provided.

I've reused the DBIC plugin inside another plugin. Is this something
that I shouldn't be doing? I've done this:

package Dancer2::Plugin::MyPlugin;
use Dancer2::Plugin;
use Dancer2::Plugin::DBIC qw//;
my $schema = Dancer2::Plugin::DBIC::schema;

And everything works okay. Am I missing something?
