[mod_python] Internal redirect (to the same server)

I believe that each browser handles the redirect HTTP messages a little 
differently, so redirection is browser-dependant.
But the question is rather how to by-pass the redirect altogether.
I believe you can do that by writing directly to the browser.

So instead of something like:
 _REQUEST.headers_out['location'] = 'http://' + your_other_virtual_server
 raise apache.SERVER_RETURN, apache.OK

you would do something like:
 _REQUEST.headers_out.add( your other headers here)

 raise apache.SERVER_RETURN, apache.OK

where :
 some_html_document = """\

Hope this helps,
