[jifty-devel] set_ on a refers_to (collection)

Hi all,

I'm exploring writing into collections (specifically, the dirt-simple 
ones which behave as arrays) and discovered that the autoload setup in 
Jifty::DBI::Record lets the $record->set_stuff() request through to 
__set() which then makes a lot of "execute failed" noise and returns an 
error object.


This patch doesn't really fix anything, it just dies in the right place.

Is there a plan to support writes to collections via the toplevel record 

  $record->set_stuff(qw(foo bar baz));


You see, Perl's really a big language and it's not a toy.
