Wow, this must have been from the core list, or on IRC - this is all news to me.
Do I understand it right that Dancer and Mojolicious is to Perl what Jquery is to Javascript? I'm all for that. I know that because of Jquery I (can and do) leverage Javacript about 1300, 1350 times more than without it.
I'd hate to see several versions (forks?) of IC though, and I would say straying away from commerce would be bad. In my experience any web app I have built also needed, benefitied from, or eventually used ecommerce functions in one way or another.
