  Description     : Update Class::DBI data using CGI::Untaint

 Lots of times, Class::DBI is used in web-based applications. (In
 fact, coupled with a templating system that allows you to pass
 objects, such as Template::Toolkit, Class::DBI is very much your
 friend for these.)
 And, as we all know, one of the most irritating things about writing
 web-based applications is the monotony of writing much of the same
 stuff over and over again. And, where there's monotony there's a
 tendency to skip over stuff that we all know is really important, but
 is a pain to write - like Taint Checking and sensible input
 validation. (Especially as we can still show a 'working' application
 without it!). So, we now have CGI::Untaint to take care of a lot of
 that for us.
 It so happens that CGI::Untaint also plays well with Class::DBI. All
 you need to do is to 'use Class::DBI::FromCGI' in your class (or in
 your local Class::DBI subclass that all your other classes inherit
 from. You do do that, don't you?).
