First I suppose we should read the docs, and see what areas seem of most
interest. There is so much crap in there that we can just pick the parts
that interest us. Perhaps for this month, we can just peruse the docs,
and decide what we want to talk about for future meetings. I'll take a
look at the docs, and see what comes to mind.

I have Lincoln Stein's book about CGI.pm (signed, even!) but someone has
borrowed it at the moment. If'When I get it back, perhaps I can make
some comments about how Lincoln tackles a reading of the module.
