Re: Require Pylons, or copy-and-paste its code?


I'm not fully convinced we need this yet (see email on the merge
proposal), so I'm going to vote for your ruled out third option of
keeping it simple and writing a really basic wrapper over routes like
you have started. :)

I think Pylons is too heavy, and I really don't like the idea of
copying in parts of modules since you loose one of the reasons you
are using it in the first place - keeping it up to date automatically
between upgrades.
