Here is what I'd like to be able to do:

I want to be able administer routes using a rails application. So an
would list routes and give users the ability to manage these on the fly:

class RoutesController < ApplicationController
  # very simple example

  def add
     Routes.connect 'customurl', :controller => "customcontroller",
:controller => "customaction" # save user created routes back to routes.rb file or
some other storage mechanism

  def list
      @allroutes = Routes.find(:all)


Is this possible?

Ideally what is required is direct access to
in the ApplicationController if this can be achieved?

Any help much appreciated,
