I've found that most of the time, the "fatal warnings" you get when you 
follow this practice are just silly things.  Mostly, it's complaints 
about uninitialized variables used in strings:

     my $foo;
     ...then later...
     debug "Lorem ipsum $foo dolor sic amet"

Dancer stops the whole world, as though this has a real consequence, 
when it really does not.  You can start feeling that Dancer has some 
Chicken Little DNA in it.

However, occasionally it does catch a real problem, something you 
wouldn't want to appear in production.

So I tolerate it, and encourage you to, as well. :)
