Doesn't look like they use all that much.  ec2 middleware uses 
nova/wsgi.py's Middleware object, which extends Application.  This 
pattern seems pretty common through the other middlewares. Application 
is bascially an Abstract base class, and pulls in no dependencies.  The 
Middleware class depends on webob,


And that is pretty much it.

wsgi.py in both Nova and Keystone directly depend on Eventlet, and I've 
been trying to work around that for HTTPD support.  The Application and 
Middleware classes do not seem to need Eventlet specific code, and 
pulling them out would be a sound refactoring. It looks like the 
Keystone one is a cut/paste version of the Nova on anyway, and that also 
makes it a candidate for extraction.
