I'm not sure that putting either into Oslo is the right solution, but
add-ons/hooks that seem to be pretty common would be OK.

As I mentioned at the summit, we ended up doing Falcon because Pecan and
Flask were too slow for a chatty data API. That being said, Pecan does
some nice things for you, and is probably fast enough for management APIs.
If we could standardize on a couple frameworks, that may be Good Enough.
