No problem.

I didn't think it was in the docs at first either, but I have found a
passing mention of it here:
About 3/4 of the way down in the section "Run Tests and Start the Web Server"

If paster is a common way of deploying these apps, this probably does
need some elaboration, but I think the main intention for paster is as
a development tool used on a workstation rather than a server and
deployment will be through apache and mod_wsgi or something (at least
this is the impression I get).
