That seems perfectly reasonable. My main goal in starting the
discussion was to ensure that we reach some kind of consensus,
whatever it might be[1]. It won't be too much of an ordeal to
turn the existing pure WSGI stuff into Flask stuff.

was a win as it allowed for a lot of clarity from the inside out.
Now that that development has shown the shape of the API we can
do what we need to do to make it clear from outside in.

Next question: There's some support for not using Paste and
paste.ini. Is anyone opposed to that?

[1] As long as it wasn't the overly complex Nova way.
