I was going to step in with a somewhat biased recommendation of Dancer, but
I'm happy to see that it's already been recommended :)

Not that I'm aware of, but there should really!
I think there needs to be a Dancer::Plugin::Auth::OAuth - I'll try to get
round to writing one as soon as I have a chance, but there's a fair chance
someone else might well do it in the meantime.
By the way, you'll find the Dancer dev team (and some users, too :) ) on IRC
in #dancer on irc.perl.org if you want to ask questions quickly.
