  package Category;

  use Rose::DB::Object::Std::Cached;
  our @ISA = qw(Rose::DB::Object::Std::Cached);


    id          => { type => 'int', primary_key => 1 },
    name        => { type => 'varchar', length => 255 },
    description => { type => 'text' },




  $cat1 = Category->new(id   => 123,
                        name => 'Art');

  $cat1->save or die $category->error;

  $cat2 = Category->new(id => 123);

  # This will load from the memory cache, not the database
  $cat2->load or die $cat2->error; 

  # $cat2 is the same object as $cat1
  print "Yep, cached"  if($cat1 eq $cat2);

  # No, really, it's the same object
  print $cat2->name; # prints "Blah"
