WSGI isn't really something an application programmer can use; or at
least it's not likely to be a very satisfying experience if they do.
I'm optimistic that at some point most of the actively developed Python
web frameworks we have now will be ported to WSGI. Ultimately, I think
WSGI should be something a more casual Python web programmer wouldn't
even realize exists.
