Introducing Apache2::ASPby jdrago_999 (Hermit)

Inspired by the "Perl Makes Easy Things Easy and Hard Things Possible" motto, Apache2::ASP is now available for Beta testing.
I wrote Apache2::ASP because I found myself doing too much scaffolding to produce the same set of features everytime I needed them. Things like database-persisted Session state, file uploads with a progress bar and server-generated thumbnail images used to take me hours (or more) to go from zero to finished. With Apache2::ASP I can be done within an hour or so.
There are some examples over at http://apache2-asp.no-ip.org/ so you can see it in action:
**ANOTHER** WEB FRAMEWORK?I know, I know - web frameworks are to Perl as string libraries are to C. None of the existing web frameworks did quite what I wanted them to do.
Catalyst does much more than I want and is too verbose.
Anything that uses Template Toolkit is a turn-off for me because of TT's sub-language and I'm never quite sure if it will install or not (dependancies, dependancies, dependancies).
I'ved used Apache::ASP for years and finally could not handle forcing database-persisted Sessions onto it anymore.
