This shouldn't be a problem (in paste.deploy or the alternatives we're 
discussing) -- the "urlmap" I refer to is just (not very complicated) 
Python code.  You could do the same thing dispatching on HTTP methods. 
With paste.deploy you'd do something like:

use = egg:MyFramework#httpdispatch
GET = config:static_root.ini ...

If you want to do both at once (dispatch both on path like urlmap, and 
on HTTP method) you'd have to make something like urlmap that also keeps 
track of methods, and use "GET / = ...".  Potentially urlmap could 
support all of these (maybe not all as egg:Paste#urlmap, but with the 
same basic code).  Right now it matches based on path prefix and domain, 
and I've meant to add ports, and HTTP method would be easy enough.
