Hello list members,

I've just got one question: "do Python programs need to be
specifically tailored for use with mod_python, or should Python
CGI programs be able to run unmodified ?"

My guess is, that I need some sort of a "connector" to convert the
regular CGI parameters into Python interpreter parameters, and start
the interpreter on the appropriate script. I'd have to rewrite that
connector to make use of the mod_python facilities. Any additional
pitfalls that I don't see yet ?
