I didn't attend the last talk and Im sure this was mentioned in the talk,
but if not I wanted to point out that you can tie a mod_perl debugging
session to emacs. The first time I did this I got a real kick out of
walking through my perl code, step by step within emacs (i.e. in the
editor not just a perl debugger command line) while it was still running
in mod_perl!
It was like watching your cgi run in slow motion while you could play with
its internals to your hearts content.

How to achieve this documented here:

... with proper design, the features come cheaply. This
approach is arduous, but continues to succeed.
