Yes and no.  Maybe I'm stuck on thinking about Local too much.
But, your example is kind of what I was trying to avoid -- having code
inside the controller know anything about where it's located.

I'm trying to write a controller that's based on where it's placed in
the lib/App/C hierarchy and doesn't require any changes to the
controller if it's moved.

    mv C/Admin/Crud.pm C/Other/Foo/Bar/Bla.pm

and now the URLs been remapped.  (Except the "package" needs to be
updated -- too bad that's even needed as we can infer the package name
from where the file is located.)

"Local" actions solve this, although then I've got an extra path
segment that doesn't convey any information.  Well, that's not true if
I move to the common method of listing the actions before the table

I guess I'll just have to conform.  ;)
