I'm quite happy with Rose::HTML::Form because I like having forms as classes. It also was one of the fastest form solutions back when we evaluated the candidates. Nowadays, I'd probably give HTML::FormHandler a try, mainly because it also follows the "every form is a class" approach (which IMHO is *much* better than having your forms defined in YAML files).
