Yes, and there's no straightforward way (that I can find) to dump
the available routes (which is handy for testing, debugging,
documenting, etc).

While Falcon's style is a clear step in the right direction I think
it would be even better with a slight extension (which may already
exist, if it doesn't it would be easy to make): Load the route mappings
from a file so you (as a human) can have a single index into code.

A few years ago I was completely in love with selector[1] because
all it did was delegate an incoming WSGI request to one of several
WSGI callables based on request method and parameterized paths.
