Sounds good.  I strongly prefer less restrictive licenses like this to 
GPL, which would be a problem for me in this case.

My current code base caches but still has Python code running to access
the cache.  This should be changed to allow static directly servable files
as an option, but in fact I would like to retain a layered approach where
there can be a mix of dynamic and static content (even down to different
elements on the same browser page).

It's fine as a start, anyway, as I'm sure we'll evolve what we want
this thing to be and after we figure out how/if to merge the various
initial code bases.
