One alternative would be to find a really good hosting company.
Pairnic.com is a big supporter of Perl.  I can see the viewpoint of
totally handing off the application to the hosting company.  There is
one ruby on rails hosting company I saw the other day; that is all
they do, so they are experts at hosting ROR apps.  I don't know if
Pairnic.com does something similar, but there has got to be a perl
friendly hosting company out there that really knows their stuff.
