Right -- the failure was in the back end not the UI.  I know I can use WWW::Mechanize to simulate a bunch of user activity.  What I was looking for was a framework for doing that activity simultaneously (i.e. as multiple concurrent users) and tracking performance along the way.  I'm sure I can do that with the right combination of Test::* modules and forking.  I just thought there might be something ready-made.
