Between when I sent the email and saw this, I figured that sys.path may 
be my only
option. I'll need to do some experiments, but I wasn't sure though what 
if for example /a/b/.htaccess defined PythonHandler but 
/a/b/c/.htaccess defines
some other mod_python handler besides the content handler. In this case 
will possibly hold /a/b and /a/b/c. If sys.path is always reordered so 
that the
first entry is always the path for the handler being executed, all well 
and good,
if not, will be a bit more tricky.

Thanks though for confirming what I expected and I'll just have to play 
with it
a bit and look at what the code actually does.
