How about FastCGI? Medusa? Twisted? ZServer? SCGI and PCGI? ReadyExec?
It's only "relatively easy" in that you can define your own WSGI-like
protocol, make adapters for some subset of the existing servers and
gateways, and then document that protocol. There's no sense in duplicating
those efforts for each framework and each server or gateway in an N*M
explosion, especially since the coverage in practice is quite incomplete,
despite being "relatively easy" in principle.
