I agree entirely.  Having a very small and efficient core, and the ability to 
add extra features via plugins, is very useful.

It could be argued that we could ship a set of "core plugins" by default so 
that extra features are available out of the box but not enabled/loaded unless 
needed, but I'm not sure even that is a good idea.

On a note unrelated to Dancer, but related to modern Perl, I discovered "The 
Lacuna Expanse" earlier - an MMOG whose backend is all written in Perl.  
Excellent advert for modern Perl :)  It's at www.lacunaexpanse.com
