"Several" is a very dramatic understatement.
* Django
* Pylons
* TurboGears
* Zope
* Karrigell
* SkunkWeb
* Webware
* CherryPy
* web2py
* Albatross
* Aquarium
* Python Servlet Engine
* Quixote
* Snakelets
* WebStack

And that's still not the complete list.  That's why I asked the 
question.  I almost didn't ask, because I didn't want to sound like I 
was suppressing innovation, but I have to believe it would be better for 
the community as a whole to embrace and enhance one of the existing 
packages, rather than start over from scratch.
