For a simple provisioning call you don't need a full-blown WSGI
server, a CGI would suffice. So flask is overkill IMO, but YMMV.

And of course for the purpose of this list you wouldn't use
python-saml but the Shibboleth SP software instead, that's usable with
any server-based framework, including Pythonic ones.

(Also, if you decided to code your application not only specific to
the API of the app you intend to provision accounts to -- which is
unavoidable -- but also specific to the API of a python-based SAML
implementation, I'd use pysaml2 instead, as that's very likely the
more/most capable SAML implementation available in Python.)
