Catalyst::Model::FormFu

Catalyst::Model::FormFu has just hit CPAN. It is an experimental alternative interface to HTML::FormFu for Catalyst and its main puprpose is to provide improved performance over the existing Catalyst::Controller::HTML::FormFu. It parses the form configuration files and loads form objects during application startup, and then returns clones of these objects inside your actions. It is hard to evaluate precisely the performance boost that this provides (disk access speed will vary, and there is always the Catalyst overhead), but my crude benchmarks indicate that you can expect a form object to be loaded at least twice as fast when using Catalyst::Model::FormFu.
