See WebOb for Ian Bicking's effort (who did investigate a lot of these 
APIs including ours in that effort). WebOb is very widely adopted in the 
WSGI community already and I see no realistic way for us to make any 
headway there now that it is established. I believe that Pylons, 
TurboGears 2, repoze.bfg and restish all use it.

WebOb is more than an interface but also an implementation and in that 
sense is quite a bit like our zope.publisher. Even though it's a 
specific implementation it's on top of WSGI so people can adopt it 
easily. I think it would be very interesting to look for ways to make 
bits of Zope work with WebOb somehow.
