I think it would make sense for there to be *something* on
python.apache.org that answers the question of "I've got Apache and I
like Python; now what?"  

To start with just a really simple page linking to projects such as
mod_python, Cheetah (and other templating/html systems) could be
really good.  A lot more could possibly done in the future, but I
think this would be useful and hopefully not controversial.

Perhaps a few paragraphs explaining broadly how to do web development
in Python would be good.  What are the architectural decisions you
have to make (in-line vs templates vs DOM,...) and that sort of
thing.  I know I found it a bit confusing when looking at DTML vs
Cheetah vs everything else.
