[Web-SIG] WSGIKit / WSGI Webware

I've been doing some more work on WSGI Webware; I've now turned it into 
a package called wsgikit, with a distutils install, and generally a bit 
easier to work with.  Most of the components are Webware-neutral, with 
fairly thin wrappers that implement the Webware API.

While you can use it with Webware servlets, it should be possible to use 
it with other WSGI-enabled frameworks as well, coexisting peacefully. 
I'd be interested if anyone tries this; it might require some minor 
modifications to urlparser.

Right now I'm including a couple servers with it -- notably Peter Hunt's 
Twisted server, which is functionally similar to Webware's AppServer -- 
but further on I'm hoping it will be easier to patch these two pieces 
together when distributed separately.  Mostly it's a matter of 
convention and documentation.

Anyway, just a note on progress.  It's available at:
