if you have a lot of optional path elements in you url, the routes file can become pretty messy and hard to maintain

for example in case of having url mapping

/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state/@city/in-@time/page-@page 
    => handler.groovy?category=@category&subcategory=@subcategory&country=@country&state=@state&city=@city&page=@page

where country, state, city, time and page are optional you need following url mappings

/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state/@city/in-@time/page-@page
/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state/in-@time/page-@page
/@category/@subcategory/@country/in-@time/page-@page
/@category/@subcategory/in-@time/page-@page
/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state/@city/page-@page
/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state/page-@page
/@category/@subcategory/@country/page-@page
/@category/@subcategory/page-@page
/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state/@city/in-@time
/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state/in-@time
/@category/@subcategory/@country/in-@time
/@category/@subcategory/in-@time
/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state/@city
/@category/@subcategory/@country/@state
/@category/@subcategory/@country
/@category/@subcategory

would be nice if I could it define only once e.g. using following notation

/@category/@subcategory/@country?/@state?/@city?/in-@time?/page-@page?

it also implies that those path variables will be translated to query string like page=@page.
