You're right: reading the mentionend documentation is indeed fairly

My main error was (as a catalyst beginner): having an isolated view on
the <chained> argument not recognizing that <chained> - <args> -
<PathPart> - <CaptureArgs> are related so closely. Having understood the
Chained-mechanism, it's clear that it has to be so - but the first
barrier to get this understanding was too high.
Mainly I used "The definitive Guide to Catalyst"-book as first approach
- from which I assumed to be a "step by step tutorial" (which it is -
but the steps are bigger than I realized in this case). I started the
tutorial just in the middle (not having all prerequisites) and started
testing it, without having all the comprehensive information - and run
into the discussed questions ... (And most badly: I used a helpfile
which don't have "Args" und "CaptureArgs" in the search index - but
"Chained" was available, so I thought, there's no docu on those
Arguments ...)

After rereading everything - there's all information available. I just
followed the old principle "Engineers don't read manuals" (or if they
do, they only read small parts - which I did ... ;-)
