Yes, since it works quite differently from other frameworks.

Middleware are very easy to configure; in Nginx configuration file:
   wsgi_middleware wsgix.conf.middleware;

The reason is that how you want to store configuration parameters should
not hard written in the framework.
Using YAML in my framework does not prevent using other methods like
ConfigParser or Python modules.
