I like and use Quixote, so of course I'm in favor.

But I don't see any particular reason to push it into the standard
library over e.g. Webware, which the group I work in uses and also

These two frameworks support very different programming styles,
some of which may be better suited for some jobs, and some people, than

I'd be more interested in seeing a standardized connection system (e.g.
SCGI) than anything else.  Where to draw the line is a tough question,
but I think the http_request and http_response aspects of Quixote
(originally taken from Zope, ne c'est pas?) are quite useful and
