[Catalyst] change helper scripts to use TT?

Catalyst 5 is changing a lot of things - why not change the helper 
scripts too? :-)

The module Catalyst::Helper could use TT2 templates instead of here 
documents. The good points would be:
+ easier development
+ better customization (for example I could use my own - slightly 
modified - templates which already contain the correct author name and 
so on, or use different httpd.conf snippet)
+ better pod output for Catalyst::Helper (now it also contains the pod 
of the here documents)

Of course there is also a negative point:
- this adds Template to the list of needed modules

Furthermore I would like to have a config file for the helper scripts 
which include custom settings that remain after upgrading Catalyst.

What do you think?

Good bye,
