Here is the URL to the root of the thread you are talking about:

I never made such a promise...did you ever post the patch you wrote 
about here:


I've just spent the last few days hacking around this.  The solution I
came up with (I'll post the patch on tuesday or so) was to make links
always return an array ref (tied to DBIx::Recordset), rather than the
full glob.


>(I'm wondering whether the current "using globref as both arrayref and
>hashref" approach has a future at all..)
There is a nice Perl package called Object::Multitype that allows for an 
object to be used as an array and hash without the glob issues... but it 
is bound to be slow.
