Good point.  It's not a complete solution yet so I'm not sure exactly 
how to describe it; but this is what I put for now:

Paste Deployment is a system for finding and configuring WSGI 
applications and servers. For WSGI application consumers it provides a 
single, simple function (loadapp) for loading a WSGI application from a 
configuration file or a Python Egg. For WSGI application providers it 
only asks for a single, simple entry point to your application, so that 
application users don't need to be exposed to the implementation details 
of your application.

The result is something a system administrator can install and manage 
without knowing any Python, or the details of the WSGI application or 
its container.

As an aside I've also added a couple features this morning to make the 
common case of pipelining filters a bit easier to configure.

Hmm... it's also just occurred to me that filters should be easier to 
define.  In almost all cases I find I want to curry the configuration so 
it can be applied at the same time the wrapped application is passed in. 
  I might add another protocol for that.
