Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Comment

Not to belittle the work put into Webware since the early days, but Webware seemed to be ripe for a refactoring. As for whether mod_python is more suitable for certain kinds of Web applications, I'd say that Webware provides enough interesting functionality for you to build a plug-in for other kinds of resources that present themselves in different ways.

However, mod_python does seem to step more out of the way in certain areas, whereas Webware seems to make certain decisions for you (eg. resources must be "concrete" files) whether that is what you want or not.
