You shouldn't need to set content length because it will be set by Apache 
for you. Apache will decide wither to set it depending on the protocol 
version used and whether the client accepts chunked encoding.

If you want to gzip the response, the proper way to do this in Apache 2.0 
would be by implementing a filter rather than a handler, there is actually 
an example of how to do this in mod_python in the examples directory, 
though you will probably be better off using something like mod_gzip.
