I read the post again and I noticed you omitted web2py from the list  
of "major frameworks" that support wsgi. I would like to add that  
web2py uses the cherrypy 3.0 wsgiserver (unmodified) so it is as wsgi  
compliant as cherrypy is. Django instead, for example, lists "Making  
Django 100% WSGI compliant." as one of the roadmark targets for  
version 1.0.
