Okay, that makes sense.  I hadn't considered that as a use-case at the
time I made that change.

I noticed this when doing something with the password_confirm field (I
don't recall what exactly) and Jifty::Action::Record::Create.  I believe
it was a very basic form just using the default take_action with a
password field.

It encountered this check in Jifty::DBI::Record during create:
    foreach my $column_name ( keys %attribs ) {
        my $column = $self->column($column_name);
        unless ($column) {
            Carp::confess "$column_name isn't a column we know about";

My thought was "well, if it is going to Carp::confess anyway, and we
know we could have at least one field that does not match with a column,
why not just skip the unknown fields".

Perhaps a better fix in Jifty::Action::Record::Create would be to just
check and see if the password_confirm field exists and, if so, skip just
that field.
