Yup, that makes sense.  It is not what I would call an ideal solution
though :-).

The other thing that I was trying to work out was how to direct all
requests below a certain directory to a single python program.  When
the request is referring to a directory, mod_dir/mod_autoindex kick
in.  I have come up with some mod_rewrite directives, but again, I
wish there were another way to just disable those modules below that

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^$ main
RewriteRule .*/$ main
SetHandler python-program
PythonHandler main
