[mod_python] Storing functions in session ?

I went looking through the mod_python docs, I really didn't see anything that 
screamed out to me that would perform what ya suggested.  Any pointers to 
docs, or samples would be great if possible. 

Only way I saw how to tell if my apache was threaded or forked was through the 
apache.mpm_query(). Is that right ?

Thanks again for all your thoughts on this,
