In my extreme frustration yesterday, I did install 1.1806_02
yesterday, and discovered that much as indeed changed. Most
importantly, since app.psgi file doesn't exist anymore, things seem a
bit simpler (more on this in a bit), but unfortunately, dispatch.cgi
hadn't been updated... it was still looking for a psgi file, which, of
course, doesn't exist. See the code for the dancer helper script

"dispatch.cgi" =>
use Plack::Runner;
Plack::Runner->run('[% appdir %]/app.psgi')

So, I was back to a dead-end alley. I guess things are pretty
volatile, and sadly I have to demo a working app to others, so for
now, I have reverted back to 1.1805, and am working with code that
actually works somewhat.
