Regarding no database: you can do an awful lot with the filesystem. I have a couple of reasons for wanting to ditch the database:

The "freak out" comment was more about it being in Perl than the technology. I suspect that if we pitch it as a black box that does HTTP we'll be okay, but I'm a little wary -- because of inexperience, not because I don't think Perl can do what it's supposed to.
Good words about Catalyst though, thanks.
I've been working pretty much exclusively in Java for the last few years. However, we have a subproject to do some system/application automation work that's written in Perl. It's currently a CLI tool that allows us to install/upgrade our application remotely, restart the service(s) (the app runs on Solaris), and other fun stuff.
