No, mod_python still does not handle chunked request input.

Keep searching the mail archives, or JIRA issue tracker as there was a
more recent discussion than that talking about it. There are various
things that would need to be fixed or changed to handle it, but since
no active development is happening on mod_python and there are far
more important things that need to be fixed, I can't see it happening
any time soon.
