The fact that mod_psp hasn't proved anything yet while other frameworks
have seems a technical reason to me.

What do you (as the mod_psp author) think of the remarks that have been
made already by two people that a complete web application framework is
much larger in scope than mod_python. This would mean that adding it to
mod_python is like adding mod_python to the framework. At that time can
only hope that the focus of mod_python doesn't shift from being a
general and high performance Python layer for Apache to being the Apache
enablement of mod_psp.
