I would recommend Bottle  if you find the frameworks you've mentioned
above wanting. I found the documentation pretty easy You write functions
or methods to handle routes. Routing can be
done through regexes if you want. There is a template system that you
can replace if you really want to.
Failing that webpy which I haven't used/looked at in
ages but what I remember of it is it `stayed out of the way`
