[Web-SIG] Request/Response features

I've very interested into getting some sort of sane request/response 
object into the Python standard library, to form the basis of an 
informal standard on how those objects should look (even if wrappers or 
adaptation are required for most frameworks).  Technically I suppose 
cgi.FieldStorage is a request object, but it's not a very good one, and 
it's very incomplete outside of CGI (e.g., output goes to sys.stdout, 
headers come from os.environ), and unusable in a threaded environment.

A useful starting point might be to summarize the features that various 
request/response implementations already have.  Thoughts?  Wild 
enthusiasm from anyone to take on the project?  If no one else is 
interested I could probably take this on.

(PS: should this SIG be announced to python-announce?)
