[sf-perl] auto-generated web app?

After the demo of dotCloud yesterday, I decided that I want to try out a database-driven webapp. Nothing special, just a couple of tables and a relationship or two. 

Here's the rub: I don't have hardly any free time to work on this. (If I can get the app working in under 4 hours, that'd be about right.) So I'm looking for something that will let me define the table structure and then will automatically take care of:
- routes/URLs
- webpage generation
- display templates

so that I can then focus on adding features to an existing, working, database view and update site. 

I have looked at a lot of web frameworks today. I found one that looks like it can do what I want: Catalyst::Plugin::AutoCRUD. 

However, I'm sure TIMTOWTDI. 

Does anyone else know of or have experience with this kind of auto-generated database-backed site? The more it can do for me, the better, as far as I'm concerned. 
Thanks for any and all advice!
