[Grok-dev] Are functions starting with "handle_" considered special?

I'm "porting" my application to the latest Grok version and suddenly, 
whenever I try to go the http://localhost:8080/applications I get an 
error message.

After a bit of digging, I found that somehow, for some reason, a module 
level function in my application called "handle_cascade" is being 
invoked by the documentation grokking machinery(?).

It seems names starting with 'handle_' are considered special. I'm not 
sure I like that. Can someone explain why these names are special?

kind regards,
