Hello there

I've just tried new routing patterns in Go 1.22.0, and I noticed that I have to set httpmuxgo121=0 explicitly in order to get it enabled. When the release notes say to "set httpmuxgo121=1 to restore the old behaviour". So, as I understand it, by default, it should work with new path patterns.

This is the handler
mux.HandleFunc("GET /hello", func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
  fmt.Fprint(w, "Hello")

So this piece of code is not gonna work if I run it like this
`$ go run main.go`
The server responds with 404.

But it's working as expected when I explicitly set httpmuxgo121 to 0
`$ GODEBUG=httpmuxgo121=0 go run main.go`

Also, I compiled go from sources with extra logs and `use121` variable 
is set to 1 by default, when I don't specify it explicitly via the ENV variable.

What's the correct behaviour? Any clues are welcome

Starting with go1.21, GODEBUG is set by default according to the go line of go.mod.

If you want to default GODEBUG=httpmuxgo121=0.
One way to do this is to set go1.22.0 on the go line of go.mod, or add a //go:debug httpmuxgo121=0 to the go file of the main package.
