Any interest in a Route Root Symbol syntax?

Hi all. Been wondering about the possibilities of adding a new syntax for defining a root action in config/routes.rb.

I like how resources :users will set up the seven default paths (get #index, get #show/:id, post #create, etc), and wonder if we could do something similar with a symbol syntax for the root method?

Don’t know how others use their homepage, but I often find myself creating a WelcomeController with only an index action.

root "welcome#index"

If others deem it useful, it could be cool to replicate some of the syntax for resources, defaulting to the index action when used.

root :welcome # => "welcome#index"

Just bumping this one to see if there’s any further interest.
