Yaws actually lets you do ASP-ish things in very few LOC
(http://yaws.hyber.org/simple.yaws):

<html>
<h1> Yesssssss </h1>
<erl>
out(Arg) -> {html, "<h2> Hello again </h2>"}.
</erl>
</html>

I looked at the PyErlang source code and it looks pretty simple. I bet
you could make it usable after a couple of days' worth of hacking :)
