Thanks for that, makes things a little clearer.

The reason why I wanted to use CGI; was to get access to CGI->cookie.  But
from what you're saying (if I understand correctly), I should be abel to
'use Dancer qw(:syntax)', and I'll have access to the same 'cookies' method
that the Dancer core app does.
