We ran mason under fastcgi for years before Plack came along, and
these days we use HTML::Mason::PSGIHandler.

I'm not a fan of the "dispatcher" in mason, but I don't object to the
templating system (provided you avoid the pitfalls you mentioned of
defining an actual subroutine rather than a subref, and avoid some of
the more interesting features such as METHOD blocks).
