in thread What modules should be added to the corelist?

CGI was dropped from the core not only because it wasn't needed there, but because keeping it seemed like an endorsement of an antiquated programming model.

The CGI module is a GUI toolkit for web apps. It was added to the core because the web is important. Dropping it, as the web's relevance grows, makes sense to me. No not really. I would keep that for full backcompat, and add something like Mojolicious::Lite for modern web apps. :-)
