1.  Because it would allow you to get WSGI support without embedding a
Python interpreter in Nginx.

2.  Because it would allow you to utilize an existing piece of software

3.  Because the same work would benefit both the Java/Tomcat crowd as
well as the Python crowd.

Overall, it seems like *much* less work and I'd be surprised if there
were much of a performance difference at the end of the day.
