Hey Craig, I got it. You want to store your credentials in a database, but you don't want to use DBIx::Class?
What about Catalyst::Authentication::Storage::DBI? If this doesn't help, you might me right. Maybe you have to write your own authentication module. In that case, consider making it a Catalyst::Authentication::Store module, and publish it on cpan. It might be useful for others, too... By the way: Catalyst::Model::DBI is a ORM-less, raw DBI model for catalyst. So "... whenever I look at how it implements anything to do with DB access, it forces ORM upon you ..." is not correct. There are very few things which are really forced by catalyst. Using DBIx::Class is just considered "good practice". A lot of people use it, thats why it is used in most tutorials and examples.
