My only concern in this case - I'm not sure if this has been discussed
or written somewhere - is to define what the boundaries of that
divergence are. For instance, and I know this will sound quite biased,
I don't think there's anything wrong on supporting a *set* of wsgi
frameworks. To be fair, there's already a set since currently
integrated projects use webob, swob and Pecan.

The point I'd like to get at is that as a general rule we probably
shouldn't limit the set of supported libraries to just 1.
