Maybe I'm oversimplifying things...what about serving the logo from

In an ideal world, I would just expect that catalyst.pl MyApp would
simply copy the logo into the new Myapp/root directory and serve it.
Unfortunatly, static content serving issues rears it's ugly head in a
newly created app.

Is there any reason that, as an exception to the rule, Catalyst 5.5
could include the static plugin as part of it's install package?

I know the point of plugins is to keep the core simple, but in this
case, serving static content is a pretty big expected out-of-the-box
feature...without the user having to go through installing a plugin and
tweaking MyApp.pm..
