You forgot to include the poorly named and impossible to find CGI::Ex::App.
It can be used in the same fashion as CGI::Application -- if that is all you want. But CGI::Ex::App has hooks that take you a lot further through a CGI life cycle.
CGI::Ex::App can give you much of the features you'd find in something like the complex frameworks such as Jifty or Catalyst, but in a much lighter footprint and in a way that doesn't get in your face (unless you want it too).
In the end the question "which framework to use" ends up nearly having only religious answers. Pick one. Try it. Chances are it'll do what you need. If it doesn't, try a new one. Once you have picked one, you can be as religious as the rest of us.
