[mod_python] Authentification/Session Management

The session code is native to mod_python.  I emailed a patch a while 
ago to address this very issue, but I did not get any feedback.  I've 
included it here if anyone is interested.  Basically, it changes last 
accessed from the current time to the time that the session was last 
saved.  For our production boxes this has worked quite well and 
produces predictable behavior.  If anyone has any feedback or 
improvements, let me know.
