I guess that's just a matter of perspective on what elegant means on top
of user-friendliness-is-less-code-writing brainwashing.

Personally, I think that any web framework that creates a root directory
and then can't serve [static] things out of it without further
programming/configuration is broken. Especially when the example config
in mod_perl is: Location / with a perl-handler (aka, everything goes
through it by default). That's just me. It can't be all things to all
