I guess you are really asking all "Dancer users who may have also used 
Catalyst." I once tried to install Catalyst, but it insisted on 
installing a boatload of crap so I gave up.

I think the better approach might be, is there some specific 
functionality that you want that Dancer doesn't provide but Catalyst 
does. If yes, it might be worthwhile extending Dancer accordingly. If 
not, are both more than one WTDI.
