Whoops, partly spouting nonsense here. Am getting myself confused with
mod_python.publisher behaviour, whereby an internal redirect for a POST
with mod_python.publisher will not necessarily work as the first 
of mod_python.publisher will consume request content so that it isn't
available to the latter to which the request may be redirected.

There is a case where POST gets converted to GET on an internal 
but I think that is where the target mapped to an actual directory. Thus
it is a quite specific case which will probably not be an issue.

Getting late, time to go get some sleep.....
