However, unfortunately - we have to provide compatibility - for  
example c.uri_for('/static', 'css/crud', crud_type ) or similar  
constructions were broken.

I've just fixed this in trunk so that if you have an action object  
(with $c->uri_for_action, or $c->uri_for($c->action, or $c->uri_for($c- 
 >controller->action_for('foo') ) (as recommended to construct paths  
to actions) - you *will* get the encoding for args and captures.

However passing in a set of strings to basically be concatenated to  
the base uri and joined with / to produce paths will still work...

I think this is the best compromise between having round-trippable  
URIs, and also maintaining compatibility for legacy applications.

If you feel differently, shout up now please :)
