Also may be the other good idea would put at the top the sites that can be
tried by the viewer and get impressed by what he sees and not what she has
been told. I know that some sites are behind the Inranet's walls or else,
so you have to trust the story teller, but you know the common psychology
- don't tell me how good it is, let me see it and touch myself. So a
really big site can be useless for a may_become_mod_perl_devotee, while
some little one but crunching a lot of data fast is much more impressive.
And that's what we are looking for, at least that's how I understand the
concept behind stories page. Size doesn't matter :)

Also a CGI script to add a new site will help a lot :) Then 
there will be a reason for's server to go mod_perl...
