It looks like he meant to just say "isLeaf = True". It's expected to be an
attribute, not a method. It worked accidentally because all function objects
What isLeaf *does* is to say "Stop looking for more children beyond me".
i.e., this resource will not have `getChild' called on it; it will be
immediately render()ed. You can handle the rest of the path segments by
accessing them through the request object passed to the render method.
