Assuming I put my static content into /static, am I right in thinking
that if/when I move to apache/mod_perl, I can just insert a <Location>
for /static so that it's handled by the server, and thus these requests
never make it to the Catalyst app?

Until that point, during development, Catalyst gets those requests, and
just knows to serve them statically itself ..
