Next year I will have a need for a CMS that:
- tracks changes
- allows previewing
- is perl
- doesn't impose a templating system
- is open source
- works with my cat site

I've not even looked at my options yet. I just know I'm going to need
one. I don't know that I need a 'CMS', as most of them seem to have
too many damned features.
What I really want is a multi-user template editor with change
tracking, and a cat app that can talk to same... so that the app can
run in 'preview' mode.
That just gave me an idea...
