Comment on Re: A WSGI reference library

Comments:

FastCGI is orthogonal to WSGI. WSGI is a way Python applications and servers can communicate in the same process. The "server" may just be something accepting FastCGI connections, or might be a real HTTP server, or whatever. So WSGI is an internal API, not a protocol.
