Perhaps. WebStack originally took some inspiration from Webware and the Java
Servlet API, but I think that the "vocabulary" is pretty standard, so it
isn't necessarily that difficult to map WebStack API methods to framework
methods. Quixote and CherryPy may have similar abstractions, but unlike most
of the frameworks supported by WebStack, these frameworks impose various
constraints (object publishing and template-orientation) that seemingly make
it impractical to support them in an API at WebStack's level.
