I appreciate all the good points you made above that I snipped, however, 
surely the aim of WSGI is to allow the application author to not have to 
worry so much about deployment but what I'm hearing is that if you get 
your application implementation wrong, you'll suffer badly in lots of 
deployment situations.

Of course, as someone trying to write a "good" wsgi app, I'd like it to 
play nice in as many hosting scenarios as possible. What's the best way 
to achieve that?
