[mod_python] Why are you using mod_python?

I use mod_python because it turns the web server into one very large
event-driven Python program.  I can do whatever I want with requests.  I can
parse URLs however I'd like.  I can construct the response however I'd like.
I have complete control over the transaction, without any hacks or other

One of the advantages of having the web server act like a very large Python
program is its speed.  Also, from this frame of mind, caching and
preflighting are almost intuitive (if you've ever done SMP programming before
