Yes, the INSTALL file and Tutorial (from the web site) are both incorrect
in describing the installation and test procedures.

To get things working with how you've set them up, you will need to wrap
your three-line section to look like:

<Directory /path/to/apache/htdocs/test>
	AddHandler python-program .py
	PythonHandler mptest
	PythonDebug On

Then simply access any URI on your system and just make sure that it has
a .py suffix.  Instead of a 404, you should get the test output from
mptest.py.  If you do see a 404, then something is still broken.
