Generates a DBIx::Class::ResultSource from a YAML description. If the YAML is presented as shown in the SYNOPSIS the ResultSource class will be self POD documenting. If the class is executed with 'configuration' in @ARGV, a summary of the ResultSource is printed to standard out.
Note that relationships sometimes need to be created in a particular order (such is the case when defining many_to_many relationships). Given that, the relationships key takes an array of hashes; watch the indentation carefully (it's correct above). It'd be possible to optionally allow a hash here, but I think that might lead to hard to find errors. Drop me a line if you have a strong opinion.
The "self-documenting" bit mentioned above. Also, there's a boatload of punctuation and quoting that is required to do this the usual way; it's less error prone, in my opinion, to use YAML as good text editors will do the right thing by it.
