Ugh. I don't like it. That could just be me. Given the small size of
Helper, what's the point? Does that mean that catalyst.pl MyApp does
nothing until you install the Helper package? Seems like just another
barrier to getting started...and also a hindrance to all modules who
include a component and a helper, which is most models and views.

Should those be checking for the existence of Catalyst, or
Catalyst::Helper as a prereq?

For that matter, shouldn't
have a prereq for Catalyst?
