In my previous reply I forgot to correct the factual error above. 
Mod_python is *not* considered beta under apache 2. In fact mod_python 
version 3.0 and above *only* runs on apache 2.

If you are referring to Apache 2.2, then there was a small change in the 
apache APR which broke mod_python. This was fixed in mod_python 3.2.10, 
the current stable version. For the gory details see:

We don't yet support some of the nifty new features introduced in Apache 
2.2, but that does not mean that 3.2.10 is a beta release.
