from mod_python import apache
import os

def handler(req):

    modname, ext = os.path.split(req.filename)

    if ext == '.pyx':
        pyx_mod = apache.import_module(modname)

This code has not been tested :-)

BTW - You should check out the publisher handler, it probably already does
what you're trying to do.
