Found this new python / Apache module thanks to clw, its similar, but potentially faster, than mod_fcgid. Its terrific to have choices. :-)
I also posted this comment to clw, it doesn't seem to have gone through:
England has those nice ocean cliffs too - made it a very hard place to invade prior to aircraft.
modwsgi looks great. I agree - running web apps as daemons via a server like apache is terrific. Currently I use modfcgid and it works good with psyco. Python is indeed good stuff, so far I've used fail2ban, cacheability engine, and trac, but that's about it. Some of it still seems a little weird, but its growing on me. I guess PEAR is just as weird as egg. Cool post about the apt python tool for debian too - thanks for that.
