I think the thread has mostly already nailed the arguments without me. Mostly 
for me it's that mod_perl constitutes significant additional moving parts 
directly in my webserver. Keeping my Cat apps separate means I can restart 
them, tweak them, move them, crash them and screw them up at my leisure and be 
pretty damn sure I'm not going to kill anything else on the server. It's also 
nice to have a consistent deployment environment, and we often build apps with 
shared hosting deployment in mind as a target as well.
