How does one app know the prefix it's mounted at?
There seems to be no public API for that.

I would agree with you if we were talking about "lexical" 
prefixes, set using the prefix() method. I'm talking about mount 
prefixes which you pass to the load_app() method, thus outside 
of the app itself.
I don't think it's good design to forward() a request to another app.
