It may be worth considering Catalyst::Controller::REST to handle the
serialization and deserialization.  It works in much the same fashion,
but is very configurable and supports more types (even though I
recommend JSON, other people are more keen on other serialization

And if you aren't, definitely use Catalyst::View::JSON for sending
JSON back to the client for many different reasons, most of them in
the pod for C::V::JSON.
