[mod_python] multipart/x-mixed-replace

You can't set req.content_type in the middle of output like that.

import time

def index(req):
  for i in range(5):
    req.write("Content-Type: text/plain\n")
    req.write("Hello Browser %d\n"%i)
  return "\n"

Note that not all browser support this form of server push. Only
Netscape derived browsers may do so. IE didn't used to and I can't
get Safari to understand it either.
