Thanks, Dancer looks perfect.

Is there a good rule of thumb with these things as to whether something 
should go in the middleware or not. My instinct would be: anything that 
requires application logic or config (like knowing how to connect to the 
datastore) should be in the app whereas stuff like, say, gzipping should 
be in the middleware with any blurry lines (OAuth support for example) 
handled using callbacks.

Sounds about right?
