It's better than not logging them at all, but no other part in mod_python logs 
silently to the error log (apart from segfaults). Is there any reason for that? 
Maybe it's something that can happen when sessions are expired or maybe the 
session creation/deletion happens in parts where it can't write to req? I have 
my development server setup to throw errors on screen so if I don't see 
tracebacks I generally don't expect them to have happened. That's what has 
bugged me.

I'm using -dev version: mod_python_2005071222430.
