I've already looked at the Nitesi code.  I think I could use it along with a handful of Business::XX modules to implement a Dancer store site.  I have a bid out with an existing customer to redo their IC5 site using Dancer.  I'll probably be hearing back on it in January or February.

I'm willing to help.  

One big question I have regards deployment.  I'm currently using plackup and Starman and using Apache as a proxy for the webapp.  Apache is serving the static files (.css, .js etc..) directly.  It works well but it is a little more involved than deploying IC :)  

May I ask what are you using.
