Standard API for Web Applications?

Bob Hutchison recently got tbnl working with Dan Barlow's Araneida web server (instead of mod_lisp).

Apparently there are enough Python HTTP servers and web application frameworks that some people thought it might make sense to standardize the API between them. The idea is that you can select a web framework and have it work with any existing or future bit of code that listens on port 80 (or whatever) and mediates communication between clients and the brains of your code. I think it makes sense, but it's been kind of a long time since I did any serious web development. Now that Lisp has Araneida, Allegroserve, mod_lisp, and friends, maybe we're getting close to the point where it makes sense for Lisp, too.
