Web application development in Python?

For work, we're going to need a Python web application framework. It seems
there are quite a few out there, e.g. Albatross, Quixote, Webware, SkunkWeb,
etc. All of these could be potential candidates.
However, there is a slight problem. The eventual app will run on Linux, but it
will have to be developed on Windows. Most of the programs above seem to be
Linux- (or more specifically, Apache-) oriented. Also, if possible, we'd
rather avoid CGI, because of the overhead it incurs. (For testing and
developing it's fine, but not when we actually run the app "live".)
Zope comes to mind, but I wonder if that would be overkill... we don't want to
develop a really complex app, so something simple and light-weight will do.
Also, we don't want to reinvent the wheel. Creating a minimal web app with CGI
gets you a long way, but we want to (re)use existing code if possible. I have
only limited experience with web programming (some ASP/VBScript, done in the
dark days of my past). So I am looking for advice from someone with more
experience in this.
(By the way, ASP had sessions; are there Python web app systems that provide a
# decode for email address ;-)
