That is obviously a mistake. Do you mind to prepare a PR to fix it?

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 don't think that this is even possible in Dancer 1, to use plugin in an engine. In Dancer 2, you can't use a plugin in another plugin as
the plugin architecture is broken in this regard.

BTW: I also started on a DBIC provider, but gave up for now.

I need some more developers which are interested in fixing the plugin architecture, this problem
isn't addressed yet :'(
