It works, it's reliable and it's simple. CGI::App's been around a long time.
That means other programmers have done your testing for you. These are all
good things.
It's always possible to rewrite something to the latest, coolest tech, but
that doesn't mean it will work reliably, be cost-effective or can be grokked
by your average programmer.
There's a correlation there with whether your Ops department will allow you
to install it :-|
