I started with a totally static site that I generated from some TT templates
but that way every change requires a rerun of the processor before I can
actually see the outcome. With Dancer the turn around was easier.

As we add more stuff we will have more and more thing to generate,
eg. now we already have some real code generating the events page
even though that too could be static.

Later we might add some interactive things but that's not sure yet.

Finally, and maybe most importantly, it gives me an excuse to learn
a bit about Dancer.
