Is it possible that Apache doesn't call an Authz handler unless some 
other conditions are present? From your sample configuration, I see 
that you haven't set up any AuthType, AuthName, or AuthenHandler (not 
even the standard mod_auth). Apache may have decided that there's no 
way to get a username:password from the client, and so isn't running 
the AuthzHandler.

Just a thought.. I'm running some quick tests here on your 
configuration to see why it doesn't work (and it doesn't, even here). I 
have had PythonAuthenHandlers and PythonAuthzHandlers working in the 
past, though.
