I tried that approach, but the problem is that modules must be reloaded
in "correct" order. For instance, a class in module A that subclasses
something from module B, will not work if A is reloaded before B.

(the A-class will be an instance of the OLD b-class)

The only thing that could work is to del the modules from sys.modules.
However, when I tried that, weird errors occured as if half the
mod_python request, sys, site, os etc. were removed.

Clearly some dirty C-pointer hangarounds or something..
