Actually, database connections can successfully be shared among multiple 
threads with the standard Python Queue module plus some support 
code.  However, mod_python seems to have problems in general with 
multi-threaded environments.  It's quite the shame too, because the Apache 
2 worker MPM is great for moderate to high load sites.  Plus it's overall 
more efficient when it comes to shared resources like connection pools.
