[Web-SIG] WSGI in standard library

At first I was going to respond "+1". But the fact that a couple of
years haven't led to much suggests that it's unlikely to be fruitful;
there just are too many diverging ideas on what is right. (Which makes
sense since it's a huge and fast developing field.)

So unless someone (Alan Kennedy?) actually puts forward a PEP and gets
it through a review of the major players on web-sig, I'm skeptical. I
certainly don't want this potential effort to keep us from adding the
low-hanging fruit (wsgiref, with perhaps some tweaks as PJE can manage
based on recent feedback here) to the 2.5 stdlib.
