What is the template? I presume it is an email, and that you are putting links to locations within your Catalyst application into the email? What form of uri_for are you using? If it is just to capture the applications root then could you replace it with your own convenience routine that just implemented that aspect of what uri_for is doing without bringing in the whole of Catalyst?
