Most are free as in both "free beer" as well as "freedom of speech".

There's only server side to maintain. That's the whole point of web 
services: You don't have to do maintenance on clients. Since it's the 
only point, it's also the critical one.

Uh... well, there's nothing preventing you from using it, since AJAX 
runs on the client side and has no specific requirements for the server.

See point 1.

mod_python itself is quite a low-level framework. It is not a RAD (rapid 
application development) platform like ASP.NET or delphi. For example, 
if you wish to output SQL data as a table, you'll have to write all the 
code for retrieving SQL data and inserting the "<table>" tags yourself.
