I think it's more a question of documentation than capability.  If  
both systems can /do/ exactly the same thing, then whichever one  
documents it better is stronger in that department.

I don't think that any of us would argue that Catalyst's  
documentation is not (yet) its strong point.  But that's changing.

In the interest of helping it along, I've got a  
Manual::Tutorial::Background document that I'm putting together; I'm  
going to go on record as saying that I will submit it for  
consideration by Friday, July 15, 2005.  (I'm mostly going on record  
in order to motivate myself to get it done--public embarrassment is  
good at that.)  The purpose of this document is to provide the  
background information that is needed in order to make sense of the  
other Catalyst documents...in other words, a very brief exposure to  
Apache setup/config, mod_perl, Template Toolkit, etc.
