The diagram you had is exactly what WSGI provides. It's a way to
layer differnet steps in the request chain, and we can easily process
them from method to method, or push out across a HTTP transport as
needed. Up until this point, whenever you mentioned a 'proxy' I was
assuming you meant a full HTTP proxy and not just a method call. So
I think we're all on the same page now. :)
