The publisher makes this decision. It's not a simple decision to make
because a dot also serves as package.module separator in Python, so the
publisher has to make an intelligent guess on what you meant.

E.g. if you have

AddHandler mod_python .py .blah

Wheh you ask for main.blah, the publisher will drop the blah as the
extension and import module main. If you ask for main.bleh, it will assume
you meant module bleh in package main.

If you have

SetHandler mod_python

Then there is no initial list of suffixes to look at. Actually there *is*
(imp.get_suffixes()), but the publisher wasn't doing it, so in the
particular instance sited earlier in this thread, the documentation was
right and the publisher was wrong, and I think we fixed it correctly this
time for the next release.
