This will answer for all files in that directory, including images so
make sure to check the req.uri for ".html" and return an apache.DECLINED
if it's not.  Otherwise your python module will have to serve up the
images too.

Another option would be the <Files>/<FilesMatch> directives in apache,
and set it to files ending in .html.
