[mod_python] Not finding handler on public_html

mod_python prepends to sys.path the directory in which the PythonHandler
directive is specified. So if the PythonHandler is at the top level in
your config file, then you have to set the sys.path manually to make sure
Python can find your script. You can do this using the PythonPath
