Just a global remark about that: r('') is *not* similar to qr// :

It's pseudo-regexps, not real ones: all slashes are automatically 
escaped so you can write:


which would be equivalent to:


This is very convinient when writing path patterns.

this being said, I can clearly see why you want support for real Perl 
regular expression in Dancer patterns, and I see no reason why we should 
not let the user use them.

So I would vote for applying your patch, but without replacing r('') 
which has a good reason to live, I think.
