LWP: 15 distributions (109 modules)
Plack: 33 distributions (262 modules)

The bottom line is that my CGI solution requires 10-20 lines of code,
works out of the box on any web host with Perl, without the need for
additional modules and server (re)configuration.

I have yet to see Plack code that does the same.
