When we are talking on a mailing list dedicated to a web framework so we are 
probably thinking to use CGI with a web framework, then yes, CGI is not 
But not all the sites use a CMS or web framework or ORM, or templating 

There may be very simple scripts which are used just once a week or month, 
and not by the public but by a sysadmin for doing some settings. In those 
cases using CGI is better than psgi, because they are more convenient to 
create and don't stay loaded in memory and consume resources for no reason.

And I don't see why CGI should die while for those sysadmins is more helpful 
than other solutions.
