If various Perl scripts are going to be getting the header and footer,
WIBNI there were a site-specific Perl module we could use that could
set the variables $HEADER and $FOOTER for us?  (They should each be a
wellformed snippet like <div class="header">...</div> I imagine.)  A
third variable for meta stuff to include in the head section might not
go amiss as well; that would allow everything to share the same config
for stuff like stylesheet inclusion.

*shrug*, maybe somebody else on freedesktop.org uses it as much as I do.

I would have thought you'd have already installed SVG::Metadata and
its dependencies for the verification thingy for packaging; at any
rate, you would have needed to eventually.  And adding Config::Simple
is your own fault ;-)

I'd be more surprised if CGI weren't installed than CGI::Lite.  It's a
dependency for more things and so is usually installed. but CGI::Lite
often is not.

Come to think of it I'm not sure the upload script actually needs
Taint; I included my standard declaration of my taint routine that
uses it, and then I'm not sure I actually tainted anything.  (I was
originally intending to use my own hand-rolled getforminput routine,
which relies on it, but then I changed my mind and went with CGI::Lite
because my handrolled routine has not been tested on file uploads very
much.)  Still, Taint is a handy thing to have around.  But it might be
possible to take the definition of taint (and thus the use statement
for Taint) out of there without changing anything that matters.
