DBIx::Class is just a library that uses DBI, so the threading issues are 
not really changed by it.  The question for you will be how well your 
chosen database library (DBD::whatever) supports running in perl 
threads.  It may be no problem, or there may be global data structures 
on the XS side that make it impossible.  You'd be best off asking on the 
dbi-users list or a specific list for your DBD module.
