Glue

Given the current state of Python web programming I would say that WSGI is a good standard to leverage, but I don't think that "thin glue" accurately describes a real-world WSGI implementation. Even if WSGI is the most efficient way to bring the plethora of ideas into focus, it's really more like "thick glue" or "mortar". Fitting some of this stuff together is more like building with rocks than bricks. If this analogy is good, then the goal is not to chip every piece into a new shape, but to knock off the protruding edges so that they can be fitted.
