( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Arg, I hate to ask such a dumb question, but honestly, after a few days of really looking into Mojolicious, and playing around with it, I am still at a loss as to whether I really need it, or what it's really used for. I've read the documentation, and looked at some source code (Ashafix for one), and I still don't get it.

Basically, I am writing a web interface to some scripts that automate some system administration tasks. I could do this all quite easily in CGI, but I see this project being quite large as time progresses. All the interface does is allow the user to log in, then gives them an interface where they can select certain options, those options build commands and then the commands are run on the system. It's really quite simple, and had I went with CGI I'd probably be half done by now. However, hearing about Mojolicious framework I really wanted to give it a try; but now I am at a loss for what exactly it does... what exactly a framework is... how it differs from CGI, and so on. I was hoping that someone might give me some good examples of what they'd use Mojolicious for; what its advantages are, and so on. Basically, is it right for what I am doing?
