You may have read it and believed it, but apparently you didn't think
through the implications of it.

The first paragraph of the T::W::M::C docs say:

 Catalyst is an elegant MVC Web Application
 Framework. Test::WWW::Mechanize is a sub-class of WWW::Mechanize that
 incorporates features for web application testing.  The
 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst module meshes the two to allow easy
 testing of Catalyst applications without starting up a web server.

"sub-class" means that it inherits functionality from W::M.  It is
neither sensible nor appropriate for T::W::M or T::W::M::C to
recapitulate the documentation for all of their parent classes (where
does one stop---should all modules document isa()?).  The
documentation for W::M, though, has tons of discussion of stuff like

Got to be a chocolate Jesus
