This is starting to get into the area of portable deployment standards for
WSGI developers, which is mostly out of scope for the current PEP. I'd
like to see us get some field experience in various ways to do it before we
choose the "one obvious" way to do it.
That being said, don't let me stop y'all from discussing various ways to do
it, because if nobody does that we'll never get to the "one way"
part. :) I just don't expect the discussion to yield anything that would
convince me to "bless" a single option before PEP 333 is finalized.
