alright i'm just starting to look into this to see how feasable it is and 
what has to be done

if anyone has any comments on how the mod_python handler can be invoked 
through a protocol module such that the primary codebase of a particular 
application can be reused in multiple gateways, i'd appreciate it

basically what i'm looking at right now is a low level telnet protocol 
module that is reasonably transparent... that can be augmented to support 
full telnet, pop/3, imap, smtp, whatever... but that has sufficient design 
to invoke a mod_python handler, so that the pop/3 could be implemented in 
python, or whatever would be added on top.. (or potentially the pop/3 could 
be added directly to the protocol module)

the basic idea is that apache2 by default accepts http like connections, 
which aren't conducive to the synchronous communication of telnet..  
keep-alive is vaguely similar but not good enough for the purposes of 
allowing a telnet or pop/3 gateway

i've never looked at the apache2 api before so i'm just digging into that
