This should be doable from what I understand. From PEP 333:
"If the iterable returned by the application has a close() method, the
server or gateway must call that method upon completion of the current
request, whether the request was completed normally, or terminated
early due to an error. (This is to support resource release by the
application. This protocol is intended to complement PEP 325's
generator support, and other common iterables with close() methods."
So it sounds like you could add a close method on whatever iterable
that your application returns and have it do the required resource
