I took a quick gander at the docs for mod_python 2.7, and didn't spot 
anything immediately apparent to suggest it might work differently. 
Unfortunately, I don't actually have any Apache 1.3 installations around 
to play with, so the best I can say is that you might have found a bug.

(Any particular reason to stay with Apache 1.3?  There are several good 
ones, to be sure.)

A .htaccess is basically equivalent to a <Location> or <Directory> 
configuration section.  I only used it because it's a lot easier for 
quick examples than altering the main config file and restarting.
