I am using Dancer a fair amount as well. But looking at mapping
IC to it, there is a big enough paradigm shift that a complete 
rewrite seems like the only possibility.

The heart of IC is Vend::Dispatch::dispatch(), and that routine is
intertwined with all aspects of the IC model. We determine catalog,
session, configuration, etc. long before we deal with the entry URL.
I suppose you could farm all that out to a standard subroutine run
at the top of every URL entry point...but it is a bit of a stretch.
