Maybe I'm being dense, but ... why?

If the op configures his own private apache and mod_python, I fail to 
see why he'll need to use that particular convention.

I'd simply:

<Location /application>
 Set-Handler python-program
 PythonPath "[\"/app/module/location\"] + sys.path"
 PythonHandler appmodule

and in appmodule.py:

BASE = "/application/"

def handler(req):
 if req.uri.startswith("/application/"):
  # Remove the leading /application/ from uri.
  my_uri = req.uri[BASE_LEN:]

  # handle the request in whatever way.
  return apache.OK

  # request not meant for us.
  return apache.DECLINED

So.... if you'll please clarify why the previous uglified URI is 
required.... I'll just stfu. :-)
