I don't consider this good advice, especially for a beginner.

Catalyst runs *just fine* against the 5.8.6 that Apple ship. And I  
wouldn't recommend running 5.10.0 as that has a bug which makes it  
very hard to debug applications.

This is more sage advice, the failures being seen weren't in the core  
Catalyst, but in addons, although the fact that  
Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst is failing isn't good, as this is one  
of the things everyone should be encouraged to be using :(

Has anyone looked into this yet?
