I put together the start of a tutorial (its in the Cat5 subversion 
repository).  I want to try and tidy up and expand the documentation.  
If you or anyone else has ideas or suggestions for additions to the 
documentation, especially the Catalyst::Manual::XXX pages, then CC me on 
any mails and I will try to work them into the documentaion.
