Thanks Lars,

Now know WHAT plack/psgi is.

There's still a 'why should I care' aspect in my Question 2 that was
not clearly answered.

Although it was not clear in any of the Plack/PSGI documentation that
I've read, my guess is that only framework developers care about this.

I, as a developer of web applications, shouldn't. Right?

In other words, my apps will still work without modification under
mod_perl2/Apache whenever the next Catalyst release (5.9, native PSGI)
is out. Right?
