I'd like to start work with places where I think we can reach consensus
-- things like installation, some parts of the configuration,
integration with Apache, etc.  There's diversity there, but only because
everyone has to implement this stuff first, and they all did it slightly

I'd like a situation where you can install one "python web" package, and
then people can use whatever framework ontop of that, where it's very
easy to set up the framework.  There's more (feasable) problems to be
solved after that, but that's a good starting point.
