I'm using apache 2.0.58, with worker mpm, and mod_python 3.1.4.

Thanks for all your comments. I'll try to look at this probably threading 
problem... (but I'm practically sure that dbus python wrappers are thread 
aware, there is a dbus.glib.threads_init() method...)

Well, I'm implementing everything from scratch. But I would like to have a 
message framework quite "standard".

The main goal is to be able to manage a running python application on the 
server hosting a mod_python web-page (ask for stopping the application, get 
the list active tasks, ask for doing some new tasks, etc...).

Yes! I'm waiting for your suggestions :)

Thanks a lot.
