So what are we all discussing?
Those frameworks obviously have solved all of the problems of decoding
incoming request components, e.g.
from miscellaneous unknown character sets into unicode, with out any
mistakes, under all possible WSGI environments, e.g.
2. Modjy (java servlets)
So why not just adopt one of those mechanisms, e.g. Django, and make
it the de-facto standard? Since they all deliver unicode, python 3 is
no longer a problem, since it permits only unicode strings.
