The Perl database independent interface - DBI - does not take much
advantage of Perl's context sensitivity. This is the situation where
a Perl subroutine knows whether the caller wants a single scalar
value or a list of them to be returned.
DBIx::ContextualFetch is a sub-class of DBI which redefines some of
the various fetch methods to fix this oversight. It also adds a few
new methods for convenience (though not necessarily efficiency). Much
of this code was originally part of the IMA::DBI Perl module
(libima-dbi-perl package).
