On a slightly related note.  Rails 1.2 was released -- one of the  
changes includes a complete rewrite of their router code.  Might be  
worth a closer look.

   "Action Pack has an all new implementation of Routes that’s both  
faster and more secure, but it’s also a little stricter. Semicolons  
and periods are separators, so a /download/:file route which used to  
match /download/history.txt doesn’t work any more. Use :requirements  
=> { :file => /.*/ } to match the period."


(The "formats and respond_to" feature is something I've wanted for 2  
years now.  In Drupal, that is.)
