[mod_python] Using SetHandler mod_python in the web root.

Your problem comes from the fact that you are using the SetHandler
directive. As soon as you use it, *all* requests are handled by
mod_python, not just the ones for .py files.

You have two options :

1) You can use the AddHandler directive :

DocumentRoot /some/path
</Directory /some/path>
               AddHandler mod_python .py
               PythonHandler index | .py
               PythonDebug On

This way *all* request for files ending with .py (for example, a
request for /index.py) will be handled by you index handler.

For more flexibility, you could have a look at the mod_python publisher.

2) Keep the SetHandler directive, so everything will go through
mod_python, but use the Vampire handler
(http://www.dscpl.com.au/projects/vampire/). You then have to
configure Vampire to correctly serve .xsl files.
