No more than any other WSGI application does, except that it is pretty
light weight, so it is practical to run it using CGI. As Graham
pointed out, he's created a cool extension to mod_wsgi that makes it
easy to "drop in" bobo source files. I designed bobo so that source
files can be pretty self contained (e.g. not requiring external
configuration) which probably helps make this story work well.
