2. A killer application (or more!) can do a lot to boost the popularity of
the underlying technologies.

I am sure that the core Catalyst team doesn't want to take on the

  * A Facilities Reservation System (like a Hotel room or Air flight
reservation system)
  * A General Purpose Reporting Engine
  * etc.

I also would like to learn to do this with Catalyst.

experienced Catalyst mentors to work with an application project so that it
implements Catalyst best practices and contributes to the whole community.

I can envision a cluster of application teams growing up around the Catalyst

the community.
