One comment on the blog caught my eye:

You know, this rant (that Python has too much vs. Java) always bugged me, 
exactly for the remark you made: who can make sense out of what's available 
*just in Jakarta* without pulling hairs? The Java developers I work with 
choose their "faith", and that's the road they travel on, and rarely track 
the other frameworks.

But: all these frameworks *deploy* in a standard fashion, and (I think) the 
frameworks can happily co-exist in the same deployment.
That's the part that I find lacking in Python: all the apps have their own 
deployment strategies, and often seem to relish in Python's ease of setting 
up micro-servers.

This is what the WSGI proposal is meant to tackle.  I'm currently still 
putting off a rewrite of the proposal to address the issues raised by folks 
on this list, and to extend it slightly to better support architectures 
that want to either be asynchronous or to pipeline request preprocessors or 
response postprocessors.
