This is a little off topic, but that FAQ Entry isn't completely 
accurate.  At the very least, you can import the _psp module.  For 
example, the following code will work as a command line psp->html converter:

from mod_python._psp import parse
import os
class psp2html:
     def __init__(self, f):
         self.fil= file(f,'w')
     def write(self, data, blah=""):
req = psp2html('index.html')

I release it is probably considered bad form to import the "private" 
_psp module, but importing psp doesn't work, because psp imports apache 
which imports _apache.  However, as long as you aren't using any other 
mod_python modules in the psp code for the page you are converting to 
html, the above should work (it does for me, at least).  The class is 
needed because the psp parser uses the req.write() function with both 2 
and 3 arguments in different places, so making req a file won't work.
