Doing that to load non-Catalyst plugins buys you nothing, and obscures how 
modules are loaded. For example, when I want to find all the modules I'm 
using, I usually do something like this:

   grep -r '^use '

Then I might run that through sort and uniq to trim the list.

Why add yet another way to load modules? It's not like passing module 
names to catalyst like that will do something different.

Where in the tutorial does it suggest you load non-Catalyst modules like
