Mod_python (docs) kinda assumes you are familiar with how apache works,
it really just exposing the C API in a python interface for the most
part.  To learn about the apache method of doing things, I'd recommend
reading "Writing Apache Modules in C and Perl" from O'rielly press
(title is something like that).  Language and details differ some, but
the general flow is the same.

Subject: [mod_python] Handlers "good practice" question 

I consider myself as a complete newbie with mod_python.  My goal is to
setup a good foundation for my web application using mod_python. Read
all the docs, mail history messages, tried every handler but... 
What I clearly miss is a guideline of a good default structure of the
different handlers. What is good practice? I guess when I try to learn
by trial and error, some structure will come up. I'm also sure that the
documentation I have in my hands will become more clear. It feels like
that mod_python has a lot of excellent soccer players but how to make a
team of it?
Please guru's, where can I find help?
