Why "too many" ? Natural selection is a GoodThing.

Python is known as "the language with more web frameworks than
keywords", and this doesn't prevent some of these frameworks to be 1/
pretty good and 2/ becoming de facto standards.

This is slightly arrogant. Did you occur to you that quite a few OSS
developers may have at least as much experience as you do with these
kind of tools and just happen to actually prefer the unix way of doing
things ?
