[mod_python] Persistent variable again...

In my (humble) opinion, things like this are outside the scope of
mod_python, since the goal of mod_python is apache/python integration -
not building web application frameworks. In other words, mod_python is
something that makes Apache internals available in Python to give the
developer more power and speed, it's not something to make web application
development necessarily easier.

There are a few of application frameworks out there that support
mod_python - webware is one of them. I don't know much about those things,
but I think they have features like state keeping, etc.

(To that extent, even the mod_python.publisher handler is outside the
scope of mod_python, but I am willing to pursue it since it is immediately
usable, it serves as good test for advanced mod_python capabilities and
it's a pretty a good mod_python example program.)

Ultimately, there should be an area on the website that lists mod_python
modules that do various things that aren't part of mod_python
distribution. Right now there aren't enough of them out there to justify
it, but eventually there will be I'm sure.

So if you develop something that serves a particular need, please post it
to the list, and eventually we will have a collection of mod_python
modules/examples/whatever that people can use.
