Well that is up to your request_handler and what you actually want it to do.

If you want to use traditional cgi-like python scripts then you probably should
use the cgihandler.py as your request_handler. However there is often processing
that you wish to occur with each requst, this is where you would write you
own request_handler. You are able to get access to the uri passed by using the 
req.uri variable.

Hope that helps,
