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?
