Would it be appropriate to do this in an auto() ? 

I'm thinking it'd be nice to shove as much of this kind of housekeeping work up
to the application as possible. 

Alternately one could

package MyApp;

sub Process_Args: Global { ... }

and then explicitly 

package MyApp::C::Page

sub default: private 
    my ( $self, $c ) = @_;

or some similar pattern.

I'm currently working with the latter.  My itch of the instant is that I wish
I could tell Process_Args that it gets run All The Time at the MyApp level.

Of course, it's entirely possible that there's a defined and documented method
to do this, so a whack with a cluestick won't offend.
