Sorry if this is conquered ground, but I just (re-)subscribed and there's
no archive...

A while back Lincoln Stein's CGI.pm was were it was at, but now it seems
that Apache::Registry (and other Apache:: modules), plus
HTML::Mason/Template (or Template::Toolkit) have given it the boot.  No?

*Is* CGI.pm pretty much dead for programming web sites, i.e. sites that
have a consistent "look and feel"?

What's the standard bundle of modules (following the 80/20 rule) that
people *are* using for programming dynamic web sites?  (This is a market
question, not a technical one.)

I found this link comparing Template::Toolkit and HTML::Template
Anyone know how currently accurate the comparison is?  Comments on either?

And, of course, what am I completely overlooking?
