    This method writes session values to storage.

I am sure someone will post yet another example, but there has been
heaps of discussion about sessions before on the mailing list. You might
therefore go to www.modpython.org and plug:

  session save inurl:pipermail

into the search box. Doing this you may well find lots of other stuff as
well to answer questions you don't yet have.
