[mod_python] updating changes

Sending HUP signals can get old too.  If you are working on a 
development box just tweak your apache httpd.conf file.  I changed my 
httpd.conf file to cause apache to create a new server for every 
request.  It works well during development because interpreter's 
lifetime is that of the request, and any changes will be available on 
the next request without having to send a signal or explicitly restart 
the server.

Here is the section of my httpd.conf on my development machine:

<IfModule prefork.c>
StartServers         1
MinSpareServers      1
MaxSpareServers     2
MaxClients         150
MaxRequestsPerChild  1
