Using FastCGI for python

FastCGI is language-independent and like cgi can serve all languages,
but
setting up nginx with fcgiwrap and spawn-fcgi is only used for serving
Perl.
Almost all tutorials and instructions use this method for Perl-FasctCGI.
For
serving Pythong scripts, the dominant method is uWSGI.

Is there any limitation for using FastCGI for Python that it is not
usual?
or the reason is merely that uWSGI is better?

If it is only better, how much? Why there is no such system for Perl?

According to my tests, nginx FastCGI is able to fairly serve all
scripting
languages. Is there a problem that may happen at heavily usage?

uwsgi protocol (and the uWSGI application server) is not python
specific,
after python, the perl/psgi plugin is the most used behind uwsgi/uWSGI
(just as an example). The uWSGI application server can speak fastcgi
too,
but uwsgi is preferred because it is a lot more simple to parse and to
generate.

From a performance point of view, there is no particular advantage.
