By obsessively marketing Catalyst. Ideally build several web apps that are
really, really useful (c.f. Basecamp) & market the hell out of them.

Make it really really easy to get started for people who don't know much

Get Apple people using it in preference to Rails so that they *want* to
put it into the next version of OSX.

Catalyst needs an equivalent of 37Signals bigging it up all over the
*business* press.

Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your point of view) Perl people
generally mistrust marketing so Catalyst is unlikely to grow beyond the
perl community. Some may say that's a good thing.
