Location! ok, and without mod_python I write this:
<Location "/robots.txt">
   SetHandler default-handler

this works and don't call mod_python, not really a great advance for
running, but I can just change the content of a text file or upload

thank you (I'll consider to write handler, but I'm busy and this is
just an "hobby" for me)
