Try this instead:

<Directory /var/www/documentroot>
    AddHandler python-program .py
    PythonHandler mod_python.publisher
    PythonDebug On

Create test.py:

def hello(req):
     x = "Hello, world!"
     return x

Restart apache, point your browser to test.py, and see if that works.

If it doesn't, check your apache error log. You should see a line like 
this in /var/log/apache/error.log (default location in woody) right 
after restarting apache:

  [notice] mod_python: (Re)importing mod_python.publisher from None
