I maintain WWW::Mechanize::Cached, which is a drop-in replacement for WWW::Mechanize.  You can set up a custom cache to your own liking.  It's great for dealing with APIs as you can speed up the server response time considerably by avoiding the server completely when testing the same requests if you're using GET.  Lots of options out there, though.
