Bah! Simon, that sounds like far too much work for someone who is about 
(already?) to become the Beloved Leader(TM).

No, no, no, in the interests of promoting good programming practice 
(Laziness) I think you should simply use this as an opportunity to get 
other people to do the work for you.

Find a few rabid devotees of Catalyst/Maypole/et cetera and challenge 
them thusly :

"Oh, yeah, I was going to use X but I'm not sure it would be able to 
handle it, I'm going to use Y instead."

(where X is their framework of choice and Y is any other)

Then sit back and wait for them to go and prove you wrong by building 
the site you want.

You'll get a collection of sites that should provide the same 
functionality and we can also use it as a neato-comparison tutorial 
guide for comparing all frameworks involved.

Or I could just need to go and get my coffee before emailing to the l.pm 
list of course...
