Resources_controller defines an internal controller method called
'request_path'. But if you've got a 'map.resources :requests' in your routes.rb file, that defines a named route called 'request_path'.
So, if you've got this situation, the named route winds up clobbering
the internal method, with unpleasant results all around.

internal method 'request_path', to 'path_of_request' (and likewise
for 'nested_request_path'), thereby taking it out of the line of

FWIW, I've got patch against HEAD that implements this approach
in a cloned repo on github, and will shortly put in a pull request;
I hope that's not jumping the gun...
