A webframework is *written* in python. Your whole line of argumentation 
boils down to "I can write things myself in python, why use 
libraries/frameworks". Yes. You can also delete your standard-lib, and 
code everything in there yourself - with the same argument.

Using a framework is about proven solutions for common problems, letting 
you focus on working on your actual application code.
