CGI::Application::Dispatch::Server was released in Summer of '07, in part
because CGI::Application::Server didn't have dispatching support.
But soon after, in the fall, CGI::Application::Server was released, which
supports both dispatched and "regular" CGI::App entry points.
In reviewing the projects today, it seems likes CGI::Application::Server seems
to cover all the bases. Is there any reason not to combine efforts and focus on
just CGI::Application::Server ?
As far as I can tell ::Dispatch::Server doesn't seem to offer much additional
functionality, or a significantly different API.
Having both will certainly be confusing some new users now due to the similarity.
At a minimum, at least of them should document its differences and benefits over the other.
