Well, I don't think the decision's are nearly that clear cut. Ultimately,
it's pretty subjective.
I tell people to use Catalyst mostly because _I like_ Catalyst. It's not
the best web framework ever, and other people may prefer the competition.
However, I do think that using some sort of controller is pretty crucial
to having a maintainable webapp, and using Mason as your controller is not
a good idea.
