None of the stuff I'm doing requires the _features_ of Catalyst.  It is 
a mostly Windows shop I'm doing this for but tossing in Catalyst and all 
it's interesting requirements wouldn't fly.  (Having used Catalyst and 
loved it I'd be too tempted to freeping ceaturism.)  I thought I'd found 
a lighter weight framework in CGI::Application.

Well I'll keep trying.
