History and laziness I suppose. My biggest project started out as Tcl
and was switched to Python around 1.5. Besides, the boys and girls
at Apache have done a great job. May as well build on that. Even
if I go with a standalone server I will probably put Apache in front
of it for images, style sheets and other static content. I also want
to look into writing Apache modules in Python some day.
