I believe your best bet is to use a CMS that outputs static content,
which may or may not contain TT/Mason/whatever code and then gets
eval'd in your Catalyst view. That way you can combine the static
content performance with dynamic parts that are rendered on-the-fly
(like latest/hottest articles, etc.). Similar to having a CMS output
snippets of PHP code that are then executed by the PHP interpreter on

Bricolage is really awesome, but its small (although very helpful)
community made me feel uncomfortable.
