This comes from the CGI architecture by itself (IOW: it's totally 
unrelated to the language used).

It isn't, really - at least if you have enough knowledge of the HTTP 
protocol, webservers and Python !-)

If what you want is to learn *Python*, start with CGI (it'll teach you a 
lot about text processing and even possibily about web programming too) 
- but be prepared to find CGI *very* low-level compared to PHP.

Else, forget about Python 3, and try some of the nice frameworks like 
Django, Pylons, etc...
