The problem with this project IMO is that it isn't a spec -- it's a
library. The success of WSGI is that it's a duck typed protocol -- you
don't need to download anyone's code to use it.

IIRC the prime directive of the WSGI design was to make it easy to
build clients, servers, and middleware. It worked out well I think.
