I'm no master, nor have I looked at FormFu. However, I'd suggest you look at the 
Catalyst::Controller::Rose stuff I posted to CPAN last week:


That has base Controllers for use with RDBO and RHTMLO, and I'd expect you might 
use it as a starting place for tying in FormFu instead of RHTMLO. See in particular:


and the init_object() and init_form() methods.

That said, what exactly is it about RHTMLO that strikes you as less than a 
"clear separation of concerns"?
