[mod_python] Adding user-defined objects to the request

Actually, I think I may have just found the problem
which brings up another question ...

I was trying to do the addition of the object to the
request in the InitHandler.  I then noticed that I
could not even get a simple type to add to the request
in this phase of the handling.  Is that normal
behaviour?  The earliest that I seemed to be able to
add an object to the request was HeaderParser phase.

Can someone confirm or deny that the HeaderParser is
the earliest (inside a 'Location/Directory' context)
that you can add objects/attributes to the request?

In light of this, and Stian's comment, I shall try to
add my user-defined object at this phase instead.
