Speaking for myself, it's hard to see what simple things might be
missing, when I'm so familiar with the system :)
If you come across anything else that's not explained well, or any
other annoyances, please let us know, and the documentation will
continue to improve.

I've expanded the documentation to explain the templating a bit better.
I've also added a script, as you suggested, to automatically install
the templates.
I tend to use HTML::FormFu with Catalyst, and there's already a helper
script which does that - see Catalyst::Helper::HTML::FormFu

Also note, that most of the documentation uses the old lowercase field
types, such as 'text', 'submit', etc.
These are now all changed to CamelCase, such as 'Text', 'Submit', etc.

I'll be pushing out another cpan release in the next day or two which
will fix all of these issues.
