Not a good idea. Because a small WSGI application directly on top of
WSGI behaves completely different than a big WSGI application on top of
an existing system. The interfaces the implementations (WebOb,
Werkzeug, Django) expose would not change either way because they are
already unicode aware.
2to3 would go the unicode way because that's what it was written for.
But that is also the one that causes the most problems.

A WSGI Server that is byte only based on a simple one like wsgiref can
be written in a couple of minutes. You just have to take the existing
sources and make sure a b is in front of all strings that should be byte
