Looks fine to me, but I have to ask... why bother with Dancer? As you
said, it is a static site, so why not make it completely static? Don't
even use Perl if you don't have to... My own application web site uses
a static front-end, with a reverse proxy to a Dancer powered web site
for one application inside of it. So, use the tool where needed. The
old saw, "make it as simple as possible, but not simpler."
