Now that the params are forced to be utf8

Could it also be made possible for the url to be utf8.

Example when running ruby 1.9.2

# encoding: UTF-8

require 'sinatra'
get '/hellö' do
  'Hellö World!'

When loaded in browser results to

Encoding::CompatibilityError at /hell%C3%B6
incompatible encoding regexp match (UTF-8 regexp with ASCII-8BIT string)
file: base.rb
location: match
line: 554

But when I add force_encoding(@path) just before that line 554 it works.

Yeah, there has been some discussion about how to handle this on the Rack mailinglist. Essentially it boils up to a GET /hellö not being the same as GET /hell%C3%B6. Let me do some more thinking about this. James Tucker (raggi) also said he'd do a write up about handling this topic and/or write a middleware for that. Will talk to him.

Routes can use unicode characters without causing an encoding exception on
Ruby 1.9.
