Using Dist::Zilla to extract parts of your distribution

Imagine you are working on a smallish Catalyst project with an DBIx::Class model. You have been a good citizen and adhered to the principal of separation of concerns. Now you would like to extract the schema to use it anywhere else (in my case a monitoring interface that is in place and allows simple plugins). Creating a whole distribution with the related infrastructure out of the schema classes is just to much work for this one-off task. Dist::Zilla to the rescue.
