[Web-SIG] PEP222 and python on the server?

I see that PEP222 has status of deferred.  Is anyone still interested in getting this done, or working on it?

The naive summary of PEP222 is that it adds standardised Request and Response objects to the standard Python library.  

I think this is an extremely dire need since every web framework in Python is currently rolling their own (I'm doing a study of 40 such beasts in Python and another 40 in Java).  The really bad news IMO regarding this lack is not the fact that each Python framework rolls their own, but that, if they want to integrate with one another, they have to provide kludging mappings between their respective project-specific Request and Response types.
