I will give a try again with webware 1.1
It works, but not for a long time...
python3 doesn't look like a priority for me. (I admit I had some hard
time with unicode...)
Backward compatibility for webkit is the most important IMHO.
About naming convention, I don't care that much.
I'm not using plugins. A little bit of TaskKit (not a big deal)
Migrating to more modern server architectures is a big plus for me:
more scalability, comet, etc...
If it is possible to just use WebKit compatibility in order to
integrate more easily with other python libraries, it would be great.
