[mod_python] Sessions

In whatever function:

session = Session.Session(req)
session["foo"] = "This is the foo string"

Then, in the function that generates the next page:

session = Session.Session(req)
# Now, session["foo"] should equal "This is the foo string"

I'm definitely a beginner with mod_python and all other types of web
scripting, too, but I copied and pasted this from working code (I
wrote it once, and once it worked right, I forgot how I got it to
work... need to go back and perma-learn it). Someone else on this
list, please correct me if I'm wrong.

I've been through section 4.8 of the mod_python manual, but what's there doesn't tell me how to proceed (not so that my admittedly deficient mind can grasp it, anyway).  Is there a step-by-step xplanation anyone can point me to?  Seems like there must be, but I can't seem to find one.
