I don't know of anything.  But it might help to explain that WSGI 
isn't really a protocol, unless you consider e.g. Java servlets to be 
a "protocol".

To implement WSGI in a non-Python web server, you need to invoke 
Python code via the Python C API.

Pardon me if any of this is already obvious, but from your 
description it sounds like one or more parties might not be aware of 
these points.
