But there are a multitude of Python web/RPC server frameworks (CherryPy, 
Twisted, Webware for Python, Quixote, Cymbeline, etc). You're not 
looking for a webserver, you're looking for an "application server". 
mod_python is simply to allow you to run Python code within Apache.

Of course you could run a 2 layer Apache system (frontend Apache+php 
which RPCs to backend Apache+mod_python). In which case you can use 
mod_python :)
