Okay, I've done that. Now, the request at least seems to actually GET to
mod_python. But it is telling me it can't find the mptest module. I
installed mod_python from source. Did I forget to download something that
was not part of the source package?

This is the manual I am reading. I've read the entire "configuring apache"
section and, with the exception of having to recompile apache, I've followed
it to the best of my understanding. Did I miss something?

I didn't mean I chmod +x the module. I meant that I did that to the .py
script (I don't know why, it just was a last ditch effort I suppose). But I
do understand what you are saying here.

Thank you for your help!
