You can use somehing like this:

### mod_test.py
cache = {}
def handler(req):
	global cache
	if cache.has_key('num'):
		cache['num'] = cache['num'] + 1
		cache['num'] = 1

BUT, this is per apache-process persistent storage. Curently there is no way of
sharing data accross processes, except for going through a database.
Apache-2.0 may change this, when it provides a shared memory support.

What I would like to know, how does the above script work in a multithreaded
Will the threads share the 'cache' object?
