If you are subclassing Page, you can add a class attribute addSlash = 
0, like this:

class Foo(page.Page):
	addSlash = 0

If you are still subclassing Controller, you can put the addSlash = 0 
there. Consider subclassing Page instead, as having a Model, View, 
Controller triad as the base of a Page will be deprecated in the near 

If you're just using the generic Page instance, you can set it after 
creation like this:

resource = page.Page("foo")
resource.addSlash = 0

The default behavior of Woven is now to automatically add a slash 
because it makes creating relative links far easier, ironically ;-)
