Here is simple example of working file uploads (using publisher

Tested on FreeBSD 4.9 (i've also tested similar code on win32 several weeks ago):
  Apache 2.0.48,
  mod_python 3.1.3 (+ mentioned patch by David Fraser),
  Python 2.3.3

= 8< ======== .htaccess =========================
SetHandler mod_python
PythonHandler mod_python.publisher
PythonDebug On

= 8< ======== index.py ==========================
html = """
<form action="upload" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
  <input type="file" name="fileupload"/>
  <input type="submit" value="Upload!">

def index(req):
    return html

def upload(req):
    fp = req.form['fileupload'].file
    return type(fp)
= >8 ============================================
