I was merely citing that Debian does not require any -dev packages to be 
installed in order to use any version of Python with mod_python or 
apache.  You can have any combination of Python 1.5, Python 2.2, Python 
2.3, Python 2.4 with mod_python2.7+apache or mod_python3.1+apache2.  If 
you are building your own system, then of COURSE you are going to have 
development packages.  If you are trying to install it from redhat's 
package system, and it requires you to install -devel packages just for 
it to work, then it is a shortcoming in Redhat, not mod_python.
