If it's something that everyone stumbles over, why isn't there an
option to do it? What's wrong with forward_with_args() that takes a
hash(ref) consisting of:
    class => $classname (defaults to __PACKAGE__)
    method => $methodname (defaults to 'process')
    args => \@args (defaults to [])

Or, add an optional arrayref at the end that would be the args? Then,
in the real forward(), you do something like:
    if (ref($_[-1]) eq 'ARRAY') {
        $c->req->args( @{ pop(@_) } );
