I have added diff as attachment to:


The diff is against the latest version of mod_python source code
from subversion repository.

In a real hurry at the moment to get out the door and go somewhere.
As such, although I tested it working from global code executed
from a handler module import, didn't yet check it for PythonImport.
Wouldn't expect there to be a problem though.

Grisha, Nicolas, Jim. Would be appreciated if you have a glance over
the code and see if you have problems with the way I did this. Had
to change prototype of make_obcallback() in mod_python.c and init()
function in the Python "apache" module.
