After reading this thread, I have come to retract, sort of, the opinion
I held before against *too much* standardization.
A Request and Response class is okay. Something like that can be easily
merged together to make it feel like one class. The init parameters
should be pretty common: a CGI dictionary for example. The two classes
shouldn't imply too much about the environment it is being used in.
What I think will also be useful would be a standard set of functions
for escaping characters, packaged in one place.
I think that would be a good start. Though, I can't think of anything
else to add to the list.
