I've tried with both 'none' and 'default-handler', and gotten the same

My complaint is not that python is the interpreter for a url like:


because I want it to be python handled (it doesn't start with /download).
The problem is that the above url also receives the 'SSLVerifyClient
require' directive, which is incorrect.

I believe it to be impossible for a single url to be interpreted by python
AND get SSLVerifyClient at the same time.

At a deeper level, it's surprising to me that this code even reaches
mod_python -- it seems intuitively that the SSLVerifyClient directive should
be part of authentication, and ought to fail during connection negotiation,
before control is handed over to the python interpreter.
