The [Nest project](https://github.com/nestproject/Nest <https://github.com/nestproject/Nest>) seems to aim to be something like this.

While I agree that a Rack/WSGI/Plack equivalent would be benificial to have, I don’t think it fits the current goals of the stdlib (providing basic data structures and algorithms) for now.

It seems like every language benefits from having something like this (Rack in Ruby, WSGI in Python, etc.), even if only to insulate web applications from the web server implementation. I'm not sure if a language benefits from having 20 things like this, at least in the long run…

I think introducing a default http web server protocol(swift protocol) in the stdlib, something like rack(ruby) or plug(elixir), would prevent a lot of fragmentation in interfaces.
