Do note that there only exists WSGI 1.0. There is no such thing as
WSGI 2.0 as yet and you shouldn't really assume that the list of
proposed ideas for discussion will actually end up producing anything
that looks like what is described. All you can really do at present is
implement WSGI 1.0, anything else is not WSGI and certainly not WSGI
