I think the time is right. I've tracked other recent posts (Sigh. How do we get on this list?) and going back to the Christmas 'Wish List' A number of people have expressed interest/desire in creating/using Catalyst to provide a cafeteria of web site components. Catalyst has been maturing to the point that IMHO it's time to build the "portals-in-a-box"
I, too, have been working on similar ideas, and would very much like to play. I have some rough draft web widgets I'd hoped to have up on the internet this past weekend, but life intervened. It should be up soon, tho. I'll be very happy to contribute any code I've put together. In my usual 'Creative Ambivalence' fashion I have several different directions in mind all at once for a 'configurable web portal' toolset that range from development team tools thru CMS thru ecommerce.
During YAPC-Chicago a number of presenters spoke of the downward shift in perl's popularity as other langs have taken hold of the collective imagination. Lots of ideas were floated as to how to reinvigorate perl. I think Catalyst is well positioned to help in that reinvigoration.
