Being unjust

Here's what I think should go in the standard library:

- A set of battle-hardened WSGI gateways (CherryPy's WSGI server,
ISAPI-WSGI, mpcp, PEP-333's CGI gateway, flup's fastcgi and scgi
support). I think that if we included a WSGI app server with a snazzy
administration user interface (ala ColdFusion), it would be a pretty
cool thing to have.

- Defined WSGI middleware API for common components of many web
frameworks. For example, most frameworks need to map a request to a
piece of code somewhere. Many need to use a "pull" templating model.
Many need to load configuration values, etc. Web-sig should define an
API and a set of environ WSGI keys to implement all this functionality
in a pluggable manner. I made a stab at that here:
