Thanks for a quick response!

I've some Python experience, where the web development is somewhat more
matured and stabilized. They have WSGI [1], a standard interface for web
application. You can write to that interface and then put
SimpleHTTPServer (included in std lib), mod_python, *cgi, ... before
that. This is cool, because you can use a simple, library server during
development and easily switch to something big later.

On top of that Paste [2] is coming, which is a framework for web
frameworks. It handles multiple Apps (think .htaccess RewriteRules) and
filters (gzip compression, url rewriting).

This is not necessarily the One True Way, but i think the Python
community has already worked some things out very well.

So , next step: looking deeper into the plt server ... :)
