great first patch, it seems functional FWICT, but I'd still change the way
we build the regex, see below.

nit: indentation error above

why don't we return already a regex array by `get_permission_paths`, which may then be
named `get_permission_path_regex` ?

Else this seems to be a bit much of manual translations and also an unnecessary extra
overhead, I'd like to avoid custom template interpretations at runtime.


get_permission_paths (or whatever it will be named then) could look like:

sub ... {
    my $paths = (
        qr!/!,
        qr!/access!,
        # ...
        qr!/vms/\d{3,}!
    );

    return join("|", @paths);
}

or as above then has not really much extra value, especially as it's only used in one place,
just directly define the actual regex

sub check_path {
    my ($path) = @_;

    my $re = qr!^(
        /
        |/access
        # ...
        |/vms/\d{3,}
    )$!;

    return $path =~ $re;
}

would IMO be even nicer
