If I remember well $c->req->param() is not recommended, but not for 
performance reasons.

It resembles the method with the same name from CGI.pm, and it can return 
not only a scalar value, but it could also return an array if it is called 
in list context. So it might break the code if multiple values were sent for 
the same variable.
