One question popped into my mind. One of the core idea behind WSGI is the
pluggability of components respecting the interface proposed by PEP 333. I
wonder if there was reason not to try a different WSGI server when facing
a limitation with wsgiref rather than using a proprietary module? CherryPy
server or another does not matter. Of course since I have no clue of your
infrastructure and design I'm not judging here but your feedback would be
interesting on that particular case. I'm intrigued :)
