OK, but the part that confuses me is why /foo doesn't resolve to  
MyApp::Foo::index with ->go or ->visit. If it did I wouldn't nee

Again, I want to be able to access /2010-11-15/foo or /foo where both  
ultimately map to MyApp::Foo::index, so I can optionally prepend the  
date to the URI path but code all the rest of my actions without  
having to account for this.
