DBIx::Frame is an extension of the standard DBI perl module, designed around MySQL, used to create and maintain frameworks for databases. It has query logging and a standardized interface for SQL statements like 'update' and 'insert' that doesn't require understanding SQL. Ideally, the user or developer shouldn't have to know SQL to be able to administer a database; this does require a special setup which isn't necessarily easy to create.
