Of course, one of the great things about Catalyst is because it
implements pretty much everything essential to request processing,
logging, dispatch management, etc, then it really doesn't matter which
framework you run it under.

Not working with Apache/mod_perl?  Run it under lighttpd+FastCGI.
Frameworks like Catalyst put the web server back in its rightful place -
an application switch and response buffer.
