Thought I'd ammend this. Since the engine would implement the  
Template Spec, it'd do what it needs to inside, so a realistic  
example would be:

# render a template
environ['wti-source'] = template
environ['wti-vars'] = myvars
return myghtyengine(environ, start_response)

And of course the implementation details of how it plays with environ  
are left up to it. Someone who wanted something even easier could  
just have a wrapper on that call in their framework, etc.
