[Catalyst] Configuration Approach

I'm learning Catalyst, and have found that I'm using a number of
plugins, and a variety of configuraiton parameters.  It seems
that managing app configurations can be quite cumbersome as there
may be redundancy in config parameters (for exmaple with 
Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication::LDAP and Catalyst::Model::LDAP, 

What are folks doing to address this?

What do folks generally do to have configuraitons that are easily
managable by non-programmers?

Also, can anyone comment on the life of an application object?  Is one
instanciated per request, or is there a single instance that
serves all requests?  I'm guessing it's the former...

Thanks for any input.
