Pasted from the ticket summary:
Don’t let the description fool you – it’s a trivial, two-line patch.
This is about how ActionController::Base#controller_path is used.
From the commit summary:
The instance method calls the class method by default. With this change, controllers can override the instance method to set a dynamic controller_path for a given request.
It is possible to override the whole view_path (with prepend_view_path and append_view_path) for all requests, or for an individual request. It seems that the controller_path is a smaller change. In fact, I believe that any argument against doing this would apply even moreso to modifying the view_path.
