I'd certainly argue that it's no coincidence that the Servlet API - from 
what I can see - has built in support for sessions, handling form data, 
query strings, etc.

What worries me about the talk on this list is that people are aspiring 
to give Python web development all the complexity of the Java 
methodology with almost none of the convenience!

Personally I think that Java Servlets are still too low-level for your 
average web developer, so to see the implication that they're too 
high-level and therefore somehow limiting framework diversity is worrying.
