This isn't an advantage of over other frameworks. You can do the
same thing with Django, because it has a WSGI backend; people run
Django with mod_python, FastCGI, etc. I believe the same flexibility
applies to TurboGears.

As much as I'd like to see the core bits of Django (which wouldn't
require a database or include other fancy high-level features) included
in the standard library, I do think it'd devolve into a religious war
inevitably. A better goal, I think, would be to add some WSGI code to
the standard library -- for instance, code that runs a development
server for a WSGI-compliant framework, etc.  Perhaps wsgiref:

Just my two cents,
