Catalyst matches by path part, though


will be dispatched as

"Do we have anything to match /one/two/three?"
"Do we have anything to match /one/two (to be executed with args of 'three')?"
"Do we have anything to match /one (with args of ('two', 'three'))?"
"Do we have anything to match / (with args of ('one', 'two', 'three'))?" [0]
"What's the (possibly inherited) default for /one/two/three?"

[0] Can't remember if this one actually happens, no time to check, sorry.
