Continuation Based Frameworks seem to be getting quite some attention
lately. For example in the Lisp world. Check out Bill Clementson's blog
for some excellent posts.
And Seaside looks indeed very nice. Would be good to see it generate
some new interests in Smalltalk/Squeak.

Does Python really need yet another framework? Apart from the
intellectual excersise, wouldn't it be nice if Python would get a
framework "for the rest of us" (meaning: mere mortals) which would focus
upon getting work done in a simple manner instead of creating yet
another, new, hip, exciting, way of creating dynamic websites? If Python
cannot deliver a PHP clone, at least you would expect a Rails lookalike.
And though part of the Rails stack may be surpassed easily by Python
equivalents, no Python alternative offers (imho of course) the same
level of simplicity, elegance and pragmatism (!!) as Rails does.
