I would volunteer to clean up the click examples from Spring and make them simpler for new
I think this is a separate task (I could make a separate JIRA issue for it if you agree with
the cleanup).

Besides there's a much more complete project using Click with Spring:
plus the documentation, so I don't think the Spring users will be disadvantaged.

Regarding Pico, well it looks like there some sort of "pico web" now:
 with bindings to various web frameworks. From those examples however, I couldn't find a simple
way to make a "" :(.

Thank you,
