Are you using this in a production environment?  If so, can you give a rough
estimate of the cost of "a little python and usually req.sendfile()" compared
to apache serving up text files?  

I'm quite new to mod_python, just toying with it for some pet projects.  It
seems really cool, but I don't have a feel for the performance yet.  I'll do
some tests "some day" (before I do anything serious), but curious about what
others have found.
