It's not just useful for new users reading the intro with a CGI.pm 

There are other useful modules on CPAN that will process incoming request 
parameters, that have been designed to expect a CGI object that they can 
call param on. When using those modules with Cat it's handy to be able to 
pass the Cat Request object over to make them work the same.
