[PD] routeOSC: how to distinguish messages addressed to a node from messages addressed to any descendant

Suppose that in an OSC tree I have a node called "foo" (child of the /
root node) which has a few child nodes.
So I place a [routeOSC /foo] object to get all messages that are
addressed to /foo or to its child nodes.
This will catch all of the following messages:
Now, how can I discriminate messages like the first one from messages
like the others? I.e., messages directed to the /foo node and not to any
I don't think I can accomplish this with [routeOSC], or can I?
Indeed I think that [routeOSC /] should match any message that doesn't
start with an address, or alternatively, matching messages output by the
first outlet of a [routeOSC /something] should start with "/ " if the
pattern address matches the whole input address. However I understand
this would break existing patches.
Or is there another way to discriminate the above?
