Bug#296357: ITP: libcgi-simple-perl -- simple totally OO CGI interface that is CGI.pm compliant

Package: wnpp

  Description     : simple totally OO CGI interface that is CGI.pm compliant

CGI::Simple provides a relatively lightweight drop in replacement for 
CGI.pm. It shares an identical OO interface to CGI.pm for parameter 
parsing, file upload, cookie handling and header generation. This module 
is entirely object oriented, however a complete functional interface is 
available by using the CGI::Simple::Standard module.

Essentially everything in CGI.pm that relates to the CGI (not HTML) side 
of things is available. There are even a few new methods and additions 
to old ones! If you are interested in what has gone on under the hood 
see the Compatibility with CGI.pm section at the end.

In practical testing this module loads and runs about twice as fast as 
CGI.pm depending on the precise task
