I replied to that one off list I guess, but I figured Django was way 
more overhead than I wanted, doesn't really fit with solving the speed 
issue.

Awesome, thanks. I'm new to this, so some of that flew over my head, but 
I'll take a look at all of them. I'm not sure of the relevance of 
stackless in this case; I was looking into PyPy, but I'm not really sure 
whether that can be connected with nginx. I guess I could just write the 
web server in Python and use it from that point.
