There is more to it than just that. One problem is that the WSGI 1.0
specification is incompatible with Python 3.0. There were some
preliminary discussions about how the specification would need to be
changed, but no real final outcome. The discussions also probably
didn't cover everything that would need to be changed in the
specification. For example, wsgi.file_wrapper and how it would have to
be changed wasn't discussed.
The main issues were captured in:
Note though that that page is merely a collection of points discussed
and is itself not any sort of official set of amendments to the WSGI
Personally I believe that WSGI 1.0 should die along with Python 2.X. I
believe that WSGI 2.0 should be developed to replace it and the
introduction of Python 3.0 would be a great time to do that given that
people are going to have to change their code anyway and that code
isn't then likely to be backward compatible with Python 2.X.
