FWIW, happy to move that ap_swig_py out to my bitbucket space if
others want to help progress it as a basis for mod_python like more
integrated interface into Apache internals.

> It is been a long time since I played with it, but from memory can do

>  from apache.httpd import *
>  def application(environ, start_response):
>    r = request_rec(environ['apache.request_rec'])
>    ap_internal_redirect('/some/other/path', r)
>    # Dummy WSGI response as redirect already sent response.
>    start_response('200 OK', [])
>    return []
> The request_rec is already going to give you a requets object like
> mod_python, although actually closer to original Apache one than
> mod_python.
