I don't know enough about serve/servlet to answer... it's probably a  
matter of preference.

Dispatch does a little more than just give you pretty URLs, but you  
may or may not want these extra features. See the docs and the sample  
code I posted for more information.

Dispatch works with any PLT from 4.1 to present. I think serve/servlet  
was introduced in 4.1.3 (althought I might be wrong). You should be  
able to do the direct download or the SVN checkout.

I install PLT straight from SVN and find it to be quite stable. New  
features are added regularly... a few (not many) of them have broken  
backwards-compatibility and caused me to change things. I rarely have  
a problem with bugs (although the usual disclaimers undoubtedly apply).
