thanks for the links! This looks pretty interesting; it integrates
fairly well with the way I design Quixote sites.
I've been musing, on and off, about ways for twill or other Python
Web testing programs to automagically discover the URL to visit for a
test. I've mostly thought about how to stuff the relevant info into a
docstring, so that e.g. a doctest-like approach could in fact specify a
functional Web path for testing. Unfortunately I always get bogged down
at the point where I need to start with implementation ;).
It seems like the Ranvier code could easily work together with WSGI,
too, perhaps by layering a dispatcher on top of individual WSGI apps.
I could smoking something, though.
