Actually, please ignore last response - you're not generating URIs,  
you're calling code.

Don't do that.

Use an action role (Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole), or  
parameterised role (MX::Role::Parameterised) to apply method modifiers  
around the actions whose behavior you would like to decorate, rather  
than explicitly forwarding to the 'extra' code you'd like run with the  

e.g. sub foo :Does("MyAjaxShiz') { }
