Can no longer rescue_from ActionController::RoutingError

Reported by Luigi Montanez | April 20th, 2010 @ 04:50 PM | in 3.1

In Rails 2.3.x, one is able to stick this in ApplicationController to present the user with a custom 404 screen:

rescue_from(ActionController::RoutingError) { render :text => 'This is a custom 404.' }

Now in Rails 3, because routing is done as middleware (ActionDispatch), it seems that the ActionController::RoutingError that gets thrown by ActionDispatch no longer can be caught from ApplicationController -- the error is already thrown and ActionDispatch renders /templates/rescues/routing_error.erb before the controller can rescue_from the error.
