May I ask what motivated you to create this from scratch?  There are a 
number of excellent Python web application frameworks available today, 
several of which have syntax and functionality almost exactly like yours.

I'm not trying to say you shouldn't do such a thing, but people in the 
world at large already complain there are too many web frameworks for 
Python.  I'm just wondering why you didn't choose one of the existing 
frameworks that was close to what you wanted, and become a contributor 
to that.  Was there something you thought was fundamentally missing from 
the others?
