I also think I have misunderstood how mod_python
does its thing. At first I thought that the req
object was global object and a member of mod_python
that gets appropriately populated before my PSP
code executed. This led me to believe that I could
import it and use it in an arbitrary module provided
I was running within Apache (sort of like the COM's
context object).
