This is a question I have for some time now: How to get your framework object 
into the depth of 
all the RDBO and RHTMLO objects (DB table/manager, HTML forms, special fields). 
I use 
CGI::Application as my framework and Template Toolkit as my templating engine 
and it is so 
helpful to have the CGI::Application object within the template as 'c'. So I 
can just say 
c.session.param('something'). Thanks Cees!
Are there any similar solutions out there for the Rose family of Objects? E.g. 
I need something to 
list the dates of the currently logged in user. At the moment I have to 
explicitely pass the 
CGI::Application object (or the id of the user). It would be so helpful if it 
was already there
