Perhaps I need to look closer but my assumption after a pass through 
the PIP a while ago was that it was more of standard way of getting the 
information to and from the framework ("middleware") and likely not 
meant to reach the presentation and controllerish code.

I'd love to find out that I'm wrong, although I guess I would find the 
WSGI idioms around accessing request headers/form-encoded data and 
collecting response information a bit cumbersome compared to the APIs 
provided by Webstack, Quixote, Webware, CherryPy, etc.
