So you failed to make a basic feature of Catalyst work.

Then came up with a random nonexistant feature that would work around the
fact you couldn't make the basic feature of Catalyst work.

Then you asked the Catalyst list for help with *how to implement the
nonexistant thing* ...

I dunno if it's just me, but it strikes me that asking for help with Chained
in the first place would have been a much more sensible option ...
