[Catalyst] New default screen for Catalyst.

After long discussions we've decided to add  
Catalyst::Plugin::Static::Simple to the core distribution.
catalyst.pl will now also generate root/static/images containing  
buttons and a logo.

Generated application classes don't change much, they will only now  
include this:

     # -Debug activates the debug mode for very useful log messages
     # Static::Simple will serve static files from the root directory
     use Catalyst qw/-Debug Static::Simple/;

Hope this is more DWIM since "how to serve static files" is one of  
the most frequently asked question.
Another positive side effect is that you won't get flooded by  
favicon.ico requests anymore because we added one as a static file  
too. ;)

Here's a updated snapshot of the welcome screen:
