I'm not sure whether this is the correct answer, but can you simply use
a variable? E.g.

my $PREFIX = '/foo';

>     prefix '/foo';

Becomes "prefix $PREFIX"

>     get '/' => sub { forward '/foo'; };

Becomes "forward $PREFIX"

And so on.

Personally I do:

  prefix '/:name'

And then:

  my $prefix = route_parameters->get('name')

But that assumes you want to match multiple prefixes.
