While I can't speak for Bill, I can say hosting is something that
hasn't been given much thought in the last little while because I've
been focused on getting the engine and stdlib up to par, and because
the hosting APIs are, in general, very good. If there are specific
use-cases that aren't covered, it would be good to know.

What don't you have available? What would you like to see added to the
hosting API? It's too late to get changes into 2.7, but 3.x is open
season as far as changes are concerned, no matter how crazy.

My use case: a WSGI implementation for serving web sites. It basically
just mooks for a callable in a .py file and calls it with particular
arguments. I have very few issues with the hosting API, although there
are a few missing helpers that would be nice to have.

What I think is missing the most is documentation - or if it exists,
I'm not sure where to find it. Especially for using other AppDomains,
as that comes up a lot.
