Debian, while quite large, does not encompass all other distros besides
Redhat.  ;-)  Besides, until last month running Debian stable in a
production environment was a PIA without a lot of foo similar to what I
am going through here now.  I guess my line of thinking differs
considerably from most on this list.  I don't want to replace all
(most?) applications just to make one work.  Apache 1.3 and Python 2.2
work just fine together.  Sadly the problem child is mod_python. :-(
