mod_wsgi is, it seems, the future of Python web service integration. It's
become the de facto standard at this point. mod_python is dead, and fastcgi
is not the most reliable thing out there (at least, we've hit many issues
with it). So I think it wouldn't be terrible to depend on it, and it's
certainly what we plan to support going forward. That said, people should
always still be able to choose alternatives if it suits their needs. We'll
just have different levels of support.
