I agree with you that Perl is an excellent (possibly the best,
depending on what you are doing) language for writing web
applications, but to say it is the only really useful is absurd.
Some people are going to use Catalyst regardless of the background
colour, but to others it is important. I'd argue that in some ways
they are more important as they are less likely to already be heavy
I think that Catalyst does have a opportunity to reach out to non-Perl
devs, but not if we adopt the same attitude as the rest of the Perl
