The above has nothing to do with Dancer per se. I achieve the above
with a little bit of magic from mod_proxy. Nevertheless, the key is,
Dancer has to work out-of-the-box with Apache CGI, and migrate
seamlessly up to persistent Apache environments such as mod_perl,
mod_psgi (again, has anyone used that?) or FastCGI.

However, the above para does have to do with Dancer. The ability to
create a master web app, and then have other web apps inherit from
that master web app would be a very useful capability. I don't know
how much more complex it would make Dancer to be able to do so.
