  Description     : Test::WWW::Mechanize for Catalyst

 Catalyst is an elegant MVC Web Application Framework. Test::WWW::Mechanize is
 a subclass of WWW::Mechanize that incorporates features for web application
 testing. The Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst module meshes the two to allow
 easy testing of Catalyst applications without starting up a web server.
 Testing web applications has always been a bit tricky, normally starting a
 web server for your application and making real HTTP requests to it.
 Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst allows you to test Catalyst web applications
 but does not start a server or issue HTTP requests. Instead, it passes the
 HTTP request object directly to Catalyst. Thus you do not need to use a real
 hostname: "http://localhost/"; will do. However, this is optional. The
 following two lines of code do exactly the same thing:

 Now when stable release is out it's time for cleaning some stuffs in Catalyst
 packages. This package is beginning of libcatalyst-modules-perl cleaning. 
 libcatalyst-modules-perl will contain only packages from Catalyst:: namespace
 which are actively developed.
