Upgrade available of www/p5-CGI-Application, from 1.2 to 2.1.

Changes since 1.2 :
- Enhanced capabilities for creating general superclasses for your projects.
- All run modes may be referenced by method name, in addition to subref.
- Created cgiapp_init() hook to allow for inherited common behaviors.
- Added ability to set mode_param() to use a call-back instance method
  (specified by subref) instead of a CGI parameter.
- HTML::Template is now only loaded if load_tmpl() is called.
- Run-modes may now return scalar-refs in addition to scalars.
- Added new run-mode of last resort: "AUTOLOAD".  See POD for usage.
- The param() method has been extended to allow multiple parameters
  to be set at one time, via a hash (or hashref).
- Fixed bug in run() method where a null-string run-mode would be
  considered valid.  A zero-length run-mode will now result in the 
  start_mode() being called.
- The run_mode() method now may be called a subsequent time to 
  amend the list of run-modes.
- Bug fixed and documentation updated
