I'm currently using them on mod_perl 1, but it shouldn't matter. 
CGI::Application is lightweight and fast.  It will not give you any trouble.

Class::DBI is significantly (about an order of magnitude) slower than 
hand-coded DBI objects, but saves you a lot of development time, so my 
current approach is to use it and replace things that end up being too 
slow.  If you want to try something else, the developer of 
Rose::DB::Object has a benchmark that shows his module falling somewhere 
in between Class::DBI and straight DBI calls, although it's still much 
slower than DBI.
