There's no 'system' specific to Catalyst, it's down to the specific
controller implementation - and below that it's all just standard perl.

Send a patch to Catalyst::Controller::FormBuilder to add the class as a
config option, I think.

You want to make the action (the code jrockway pointed out) use the config
option if present or CGI::FormBuilder as a default. Shouldn't be that much

If you put together a patch and tests as a 'diff -ur' or 'svn diff' or
'svk diff' then I'll happily provide feedback and once we've got it to
the point of being ready get in touch with the C::C::FormBuilder author to
arrange a release for you.
