Depends on which version of mod_python you are using. If you need to be
portable to older versions of mod_python, use:

       if hasattr(req,"hlist"):
         # In mod_python 3.X have the req.hlist member.
         handler_root = req.hlist.directory
       elif hasattr(req,"get_dirs"):
         # In mod_python 2.X have the req.get_dirs() method.
         handler_root = req.get_dirs()["PythonHandler"]
