You mean specifically environ['wsgi.input'] ? While the file-like interface
is difficult, other possible interfaces aren't so great either. As to
putting the request body in the environment, I don't know what the problem
is? Or are you just concerned that people put arbitrary things in the
environ? There's far too many important use cases that are satisfied by the
extensible nature of the environ to give it up just because some people
believe it is overused.
