Plack only eliminates the start-up time if you choose a persistent
backend, including a Plack server. Plack still allows you to run scripts
as a CGI.
If you choose to run one of the built-in plack servers, then you need to
be prepared to manage running a service on a port. If you are on shared
hosting where something is already already on port 80, running a second
web server inconvenient to impossible.
If you are targeting deployment on CGI, mod_perl 1 or 2, or FastCGI,
native CGI::Application may be simpler to use.
