Does not the 'install_base' parameter provide the "stick everything under this directory" functionality?

    I expect it does. My question boils down to: Why isn't the answer to "Where is PREFIX?" just "install_base does the same thing", which is correct in 99% of cases that anyone cares about. Instead there seems to be always a long discussion about how bad PREFIX is, that never actually gets to the point.

    NB: I have most likely not read all existing discussions on the subject, so this is just a synopsis of those on PM that I've seen.

[Corion]: There is a weirdo shim because there is a POE integration for Prima, and if you use that, you can use the POE adapter of AnyEvent. What I'd want is something transport agnostic that parses HTTP or produces HTTP output, so that the communication with ...
[Corion]: ... the socket is done by my code. Ideally that module would not be based on callbacks ;)
[Corion]: Basically, something that decouples the HTTP parsing (+ determining whether to redirect, etc) from the IO
[Corion]: All clients I'm aware of don't do that but issue all IO themselves
