is this whiff/wsgi claim true?

Hi folks.  I just modified the WHIFF concepts index page

To include the following paragraph with a startling and arrogant
claim in the final sentence :)

Developers build WHIFF applications much like they build
static web content, PHP applications, JSP pages, or ASP
pages among others -- the developer "drops" files into a
directory, and the files are automatically used to respond
to URLs related to the filename.
**This intuitive and ubiquitous approach to organizing
web components is not automatically supported by other
WSGI infrastructures.**

[I go on to illustrate the concept with examples...]

Is the final sentence true?  Are there other WSGI approach
which make deploying a dynamic page as easy as putting
an HTML file in a static directory?  If I'm lying I'd like to
correct the statement and my knowledge of what else is out
there is faulty and incomplete, so please correct me.

Thanks,  -- Aaron Watters
