Maybe not. When I look at it, mod_wsgi is also leaking on 'graceful'
and 'restart' as well. If these leaks are from Python itself not
cleaning things up properly, not sure what I am going to do. Unlike
mod_python I actually Py_Finalize() the interpreter in the main
process so that everything is properly reset back to a clean slate, so
I may actually be more susceptible to it than mod_python.

I'll investigate the mod_wsgi problem and maybe that will throw some
light on why mod_python also has problems.
