Catalyst, lighttpd proxying to FastCGI.


Alternatively if you write an article about it it ought to pay for the
outlay on VMs or whatever, either selling the article to perl.com or
running AdSense.

I didn't quite understand why you thought you'd need more than one VM,
with Bytemark at least it's pretty straightforward to reset your VM to
its blank state. You can even try variations on OSs and kernels. You
could have one machine that was your test master that run automated
tests on the slave VM, rinsed (performed VM resets), and repeated.
