Literally. Here is the algorithm I have in mind:

1. For each otherwise equally applicable implicit rule extract the
   stem (i.e. what % matched).

2. Find the shortest stem and use corresponding rule.

This would mean that the most "specialized" or "restricted" rule will 
be used which is what you usually want. For example:



When you try to match "/foo/bar/baz" against those rules the second
one is chosen.
