 From what I'm seeing here, the fact that you're getting stuff out of  
a file fetched w/Mech doesn't matter, does it?  You're just building  
a screen that you can present to your user?  CGI::Application might  
be overkill, but it's hard to tell specifics of your app.

Can you give more details on what the flow would look like?  User  
does X, your program does Y, presents user with Z, user enters....
