This is the greatest misconception about WSGI. It is not the holy grail you 
might expect from reading secondary documentation. I paraphrase Itamar: "It 
works well for simple Web servers and applications, but does not work well 
for Twisted and Zope." I totally agree. In order to make some more advanced 
features possible, such as logging, you need to extend the WSGI data 
dictionary (which is encouraged by the PEP) in a server-application 
proprietary way. That's okay and we will do that, but please do not tell me 
that you can just hook up any Web server just like that and expect 
*everything* to work magically.

BTW, ZServer can talk WSGI already. Just use the WSGI-HTTP in zope.conf 
instead of HTTP.
