I'm using FormFu because it was mentioned in the Catalyst tutorial back when I went through it.  When I discovered HFH I didn't look into it because I already was using FormFu and was happy with it.  Now that I see it is based on Perl modules it seems interesting to me, however, I won't change current projects.  But for new projects I might give it a try.

Can you explain what your situation were in which you had to override HFH things?
