Ahhh, not five minutes after I send this email, having sat on the email
for most of the day, I found what I wanted. One can use req.hlist to get
the name of the directory where the handler is defined. It doesn't seem to
be documented as a user type feature, but returns something like:


It is the value for "directory" that I want.

How about a future version of mod_python formalising a sanctioned way
of users getting access to information about handlers and the directory
level they were defined at?

No to see if this really solves my problem. :-)
