No. A WSGI app is basically just a callable. Of course, the app can do lots of crazy things. There may also be some setup cost if you use things like Paste Deploy, but that's a one-time thing. zope.pipeline may of course do lots of crazy things in its apps. ;-) Martin -- Author of `Professional Plone Development`, a book for developers who want to work with Plone.
