I already decided to go with Dancer and I'm in the progress to develop a
few small dancer applications to get more experience with it.

In addition to that, I uploaded recently a Dancer template engine module
for Template::Flute (new development of mine, see my talks on Template::Zoom):


However, I see no reason why Interchange 6 core code shouldn't work with any other
micro or macro framework. Dancer appears to me the most elegant and sexy one.

Also, in order to bite some market share out of Magento we need to excel
at development, deployment and site speed (IMHO).
