I think that devs are interested in tools that let them get things up 
and running with little effort, so perhaps an article explaining how 
easy it is to use catalyst/dancer/mojo + dbic + plack (with a bit of 
moose thrown in) using distro packages (cpan probably frustrates newbies 
to perl if installation / tests fail) to get a web app up and running in 
a few minutes.

That was the appeal of ruby and rails as far as I can make out.
