Indeed. I didn’t want to go too far from the initial "shutdown function" 
proposal, but actual context managers would be better.

So a super-set of WSGI that is not just a gateway but also does process 

def super_application(server_infos):
     with contextlib.closing(open_resource()) as resource:
         wsgi_callable = make_app(server_infos, resource)
         yield wsgi_callable
