After a discussion on IRC, we came up with the idea to use "captures" 
for the following reasons:

- it's meaningfull

- we already have "splat" for unnamed tokens, so there's no reason we 
should prefix "captures" with "route" or "url"

- Sinatra use "splat" and "captures", we want to be close to Sinatra's 
syntax (see http://www.sinatrarb.com/intro )

- bigpresh, as a native english speaker, thought at "captures" in the 
first place

I'll review the patch Marc has written as soon as it's submitted in a 
branch of his repo.

Thanks Marc for your work!
