I found the Server's "register cleanup(request, callable[, data ])" method.

When do I call it?

It seems it should be done once per Apache child process, not with every 
request.  I don't see a way to run something only when mod_python is 
instantiated initially.

I'm using mpservlets in case that makes any difference (I doubt it).
