I thought that one of the major features of most of these Python web
frameworks is that a URI doesn't map to a file but to an object or a
function, several of which might be in one physical file. Since WSGI
seems to be promoted as a minimal system that applies equally to almost
any system, I'd think that such a mapping falls entirely out of its scope.
I agree that it might be useful to have this functionality. I think a
standard way to map URIs to Python files would be beneficial for Python
web development. I just don't see it fitting into what people here have
told me about WSGI.
