We recently ported Bobo to Python 3.  We typically deployed Bobo apps
using paste.script, but it hasn't been ported to Python 3 yet.

To facilitate using WSGI apps under Python 3, I created zc.wsgirunner,
which which is a replacement for paste.script for running WSGI
applications that are assembled using past.deploy.


It works much the same way as paste.script/paste.deploy, but:

- Works with Python 2 and 3.

- Provides a process configuration mechanism.

- Provides logging configuration.

- Calls sys.setcheckinterval(1000), which is fairly important for performance
  older versions of Python (<3.2) on multi-processor machines.
