Okay guys, Rose::HTML::Form seems to leak memory like mad. I've tried every
single version from the most current one (0.554) downwards and checked the
memory usage with a simple Catalyst application. The process size became stable
after downgrading to Rose::HTML::Object 0.549. So the latest six versions have a
huge memory leak (the cat process grew up to 100 MB with nothing but a simple
form after using ab to hit the app with 1000 requests)!

I'll file a bug report and take a look at what's going on under the hood.
