That's beside the point. Prefix matching is inherently a more complex
concept, and more likely to be confusing, without introducing much in the
way of new features. If I want to dispatch /foo/bar, why not just use:
So, I don't see prefix matching as introducing anything that's worth the
extra complexity. If somebody needs a high-performance prefix matcher,
they can get yours from Paste.
If I was going to include a more sophisticated dispatcher, I'd add an
ordered regular expression dispatcher, since that would support use cases
that the simple or prefix dispatchers would not, but it would also support
the prefix cases without nesting.

That was for brevity; it should probably also take a mapping argument.
