[mod_python] passing parameters from index() to POST method

 From my earlier example, it was not called twice. I made it called 
twice as suggested here.
Maybe this is more clear: Ideally I simply want to have an index 
function to set the stuff up and show the form and another function that 
gets called when the client does the post (the easy bit) but I want some 
variables that are set up in the index to be present in the function 
called on post. Is there a standard way to post variable between the 
handler and the post functions?
