I've been reading this thread with interest because Leandro's
description seems to fit my situation as well. This seems like a pretty
lame response. Does it mean that Catalyst can't be configured to live in
a separate place from the bulk of the 'business' logic?

The ability to put different bits of an application suite in different
places is a pretty useful capability for application designers. If every
framework said that it was going to be top of the tree, life would be
difficult, IMHO. I still have nightmares about all the event-driven
frameworks that assumed *they* were going to be the one that had control
of the select/poll loop, for example.

The ability to separate concerns is a fundamental strategy in software

Or am I misunderstanding?

Cheers, Dave
