Thanks graham, forgot to mention that i also need the uri part of the
current handler,ie:

<Directory "/var/www/mywebapp/handler_root">
  SetHandler mod_python
  PythonHandler myhandler
  PythonOption dirpath "/mywebapp/handler_root"

Any way to get this information in one step? without having to   
req.filename[len(req.hlist.directory): ]
