I have found that we need to create physical directories in the Apache 
html directory corresponding to any subdirectories we want to handle in 
the Python script, otherwise we get a 404 error. Has anyone else found 
this? Is the SetLocation the answer for this?
The reason I would like to know is we would like to use dynamically 
generated path names without them existing on the disk

Thanks for the code
