I thought we have WSGI for this?  Nothing stops a Python app from
working like PHP.  PHP has an advantage when you want to run mutually
hostile apps in the same process (relevant if you're running ultra-cheap
shared hosting and you want to put 1000 customers' virtual hosts in the
same mod_php instance), but I don't think you're looking to do that.
