Nevow has its own API, why should it even care about the underlying
infrastructure, be it web or web2?

Just port nevow to web2, and then it should work, no? I don't like the
idea that the nevow API will have to change.

Or do you want to make the nevow API obsolete, and if so why and what
was the problem with it? There are existing apps so I think it'd be
quite important not to require changes to applications while moving from
web to web2. Best would be to have a switch in nevow, so the application
can decide if nevow should base itself on top of web or web2 at runtime.
