I've been on Web-SIG for quite a while now, exactly to keep track of
Since there doesn't seem to be much traction, I figured it would be
time to just get a new PEP together. To limit the amount of work, I'd
go in the direction of having a single WSGI 2.0 PEP incorporating your
suggestions (maybe minus the number 3), everything required for Python
3 (as outlined by your wiki page).
The idea is that, as soon as there is a draft PEP, we can circulate it
on Web-SIG for a little bit before bringing it to python-dev. No
single person should really be able to block all this.
I'll try to write something up that incorporates all of your notes.
