I am trying to re-implement, using mod_python 3.1.3, an Apache 2 translation handler, originally implemented (by me) using mod_perl. Do not ask why unless you want to be bored. And anyway I prefer the Python language to Perl. I appear to be finding members (fields) of the request record which have been selected to be read only by the mod_python and thus I cannot setup the request record to get the proxy access I need done by mod_proxy. For the case in point, with mod_python 3.1.3, the proxyreq and handler cannot be set. What criteria were used in choosing which Apache data structure fields were to be read only and why the discrepancy between mod_python and mod_perl, both of which are Apache Foundation supported projects, presumably with similar objective. And please, do not say the reason is to protect developers from their own mistakes.
