It does support wsgi, I was playing around with it. I went back to
twisted-web, I like its lower level approach. Using http.request directly
vs. resources is nice since I can pretty much tell exactly what is going on.
I love the fact that you can work at an extremely low level in twisted-web.
I hope twisted-web2 doesn't get too high level. Resources are great when
your making a standalone web app, but not so great when you are wanting to
build frameworks on top of them. The biggest attraction for me in twisted is
the fact that it pretty much allows you freedom to do anything. I am
considering writing a wsgi handler for twisted-web. I think it would be a
good project.
