The last attempt was to have WSGI 1.1 as clarifications and Python 3.X.

And when I say 'last attempt', yes there have been people who have
stepped up to try and get this to happen in the past. I think you
would be the 3rd time, excluding me in general having tried to push it
in the past and also given up.

You really should perhaps look back through the archive of WEB-SIG
posts on Google Groups to understand the history and how this always
seems to just go around in circles. :-)
