good cgi framework

I am using the cgi module, along with Zope Page Templates

I made a CGIScript class that I subclass for each CGI script. This 
wrapper class allows me to define a template filename, and a context 
dictionary, and have the template automatically rendered when the CGI 
script exits without errors.

It seems to run kind of slow, but that's okay for our site...
