I forgot about that, I'd like to make things work with either
eventually. I'm working on an alternate publisher for mod_python. When
it's finished I'll share it with the mod_python community and if they
like it they can help me integrate it. I think initially I'll not
worry about threading, better to get everything running first.

Does mod_python work well under either mpm?
