If using CGI now, personally I would suggest you convert your Python
CGI application to WSGI interface (www.wsgi.org) instead. Not only
will this give you a range of deployment options from CGI, mod_python,
mod_wsgi, FASTCGI, CGI, AJP and standalone Python web servers such as
contained in Paste, for Apache hosting you may find mod_wsgi
(www.modwsgi.org) easier to build given that it is all in one file and
doesn't have separate Python code components like mod_python does.
