One less limited I proposed 2 years ago is that one too:

Which is not reusing another dsl but simply the regexp pattern like
all routers around. But what is really wanted here is a full access to
the couchdb api to return a doc from anything in the query or headers.
which is quite different. We could also go for another script language
like lua that can be interpreted natively.
