Looking at the docs for HTML::FormHandler::TraitFor::I18N it sure looks
flexible for moving toward a multi-language webapp, but when we just want a
quick proof-of-concept, we'd hope that there are some nice convenient
defaults that "just work". :(

Do we have to spend hours reading a whole set of manpages on
internationalization just to get our first elemental form to render? Surely
there's an elegant get-off-the-ground approach... This seems like a huge
detour that won't be productive, except for getting past this speed bump.
It's not that we're avoiding work, we're avoiding time-sinks, and this looks
like a time-sink.

E.g. we don't have a module MyApp::I18N with a new() method and hope to not
need to learn how to build one...

It'd be great (not to mention necessary/useful) if we were looking to
internationalize our app, but we're not.

So, is a study of I18N the One True Path to getting a form to render? Or is
there something simple we missed?

Failure is not important. How you overcome it, is.
