[mod_python] Document root

This has been asked before, I believe.
Apache has to determine the proper virtual host for a given request before
it can figure out what the document root is.  For this reason, the document
root can only be part of the request object.

Subject: [mod_python] Document root

The document root is returned by the req.document_root() function. But it
seems I should be able to obtain the document root without needing a request
object, since such a value applies to Apache itself. Is there a way of
getting Apache internal values ? I do see the Apache functions but the
explanation of what some of these return, such as config_tree(), seem pretty
sparse and I have the feeling that such values are available somehow. Does
anybody know how I might obtain the document root without a request object,
as well as access to other Apache internal values ?
