+=head1 Catalyst
+Catalyst is an elegant web application framework, extremely flexible yet
+extremely simple. It's similar to Ruby on Rails, Spring (Java), and Maypole,
+upon which it was originally based. Its most important design philosophy is to
+provide easy access to all the tools you need to develop web applications, with
+few restrictions on how you need to use these tools. However, this does mean
+that it is always possible to do things in a different way. Other web
+frameworks are initially simpler to use, but achieve this by locking the
+programmer into a single set of tools. Catalyst's emphasis on flexibility means
+that you have to think more to use it. We view this as a feature. For example,
+this leads to Catalyst being more suited to system integration tasks than other
+web frameworks.
