Currently, most new development on the 'net is done on top of a CMS. Out of the box, you get user accounts, password recovery, a message system, discussion boards, moderation, and more. Plugins give you 90% of whatever common type of site you're trying to create, such as a job board or web shop.

Popular CMS systems written in other languages have brought in huge numbers of developers to that language. Perl's mature, popular CMS once created jobs for hundreds of programmers and had its own conference, but the latest version, which modernizes it with Plack, Moose, and other things, stalled out and was never easy to install, targeting "enterprise" instead. I want to change that.
