Anyway, doomsday thoughts aside: we don't need new frameworks, or even
new amalgamations of existing projects. I think we need to make the
existing frameworks easier to use. Python Paste and WSGI in general
will help with this by standardizing deployment, but we need more and
better documentation aimed at beginning users.
IMO, of course.
