He he, that confused me for a couple of minutes too, despite having
plenty of experience with Template Toolkit and Data::FormValidator.  I
installed CRUD via the CPAN shell, which meant that the templates were
not installed and by the time I read this they had actually been
deleted.  I also couldn't figure out where Cat was setting template
root.  I would never have expected it puts templates in the same place
as images and static HTML by default.  I believe Jesse is fixing the
C::V::TT docs to cover that.

The new version of CRUD installs the templates for you, so this won't be
such an issue.

I'm still not sure what the point of comp() is.  Is it just to get the
aliasing for M and Model to work when calling class methods?
