I have been admiring the purity and simplicity of the JSON spec which
intentionally has no version number. New changes are therefore only
allowed with a new name. That removes a lot of complexity around
figuring out what versions of the spec what server implements, etc.
But the wsgi spec is far more complicated than JSON, and I expect that
complexity is probably unavoidable.
