Can we not let the PEP 444 discussion side track getting PEP 3333
sorted out? This is exactly what has happened numerous times before
when we have been trying to sort out core issues of WSGI on Python 3.
And people wander why I get grumpy now every time this happens. :-(
So, where are we at? It seems the only real issue that needs to be
resolved is the correctness or otherwise of the CGI/WSGI bridge
example. Everything else could be left as is, even if dubious.
For the CGI/WSGI bridge I take it the issue is that for bytes need to
use the internal buffer directly. I don't see a need to flush the top
level stdout because nothing should be writing to stdout besides the
WSGI bridge and so it just needs to ensure it is consistent.
Is that the last thing or do I need to go spend some time and write my
own CGI/WSGI bridge for Python 3 based on my own Python 2 one I have
lying around and just do some final validation checks with a parallel
implementation as a sanity check to make sure we got everything? This
might be a good idea anyway.
