I've always regarded HTML::FillInForm as a nasty hack; I suppose it's a handy
bit of magic during prototyping but I wouldn't try and put it into production.
Generating stuff yourself isn't too tricky anyway; a few quick TT macros will
give you the same functionality for very little extra typing in the templates,
and has always proven far more reliable for me.
