[mod_python] embedded Python

Based on what I've seen in the newsgroups and the e-mails that I often
get, there seems to be a strong interest in html-embedded Python, in fact,
from what I gather, some people went through the trouble of downloading
and installing mod_python with that expectation only to find out that it
does no such thing.

I personally think it would be extremely nice if mod_python came bundled
with a (reliable and usable) handler that processed Python embedded within
HTML. There a couple of questions that I have about it though -

1. First - is there really a great need for embedded Python? Are a lot of
people using PMZ and similar things and want them to work with mod_python?

2. Would this be something that is more desired than other fancy things
like dynamic handler registration and a deeper integration with apache
api? In other words, would you rather have a cool embedded Python thing
than the ability to create your own Apache configuration directives?

3. Should embedded Python be a project of its own, or would it be
appropriate to include it in the scope of mod_python?

Any other comments, suggestions, pointers, etc are appreciated.
