You should be able to return DECLINED in which case Apache will do its
default thing.

Not sure what you mean by this. It should execute, though if you have
another PythonHandler, that handler will execute first.

	if ext == ".foo":
		req.add_handler("PythonHandler", myfoohandler)
		# do something else
