I agree, it should do that on it's own.  It's something in the way
mod_python's handler stuff works.

Regarding your "import config" suggestion, it doesn't work on a
heavily used system.  Before that command can run, a user will get
errors (500 server errors, specifically).  I cannot afford that.
This is a web application that drives a whole company, having
periodic "errors" isn't acceptable.

Any other suggestions?
