If you are using the publisher handler (or one of the other handlers 
included with mod_python), that handler calls your code and then returns 
apache.OK. If your function also returns apache.OK you get the extra "0" 
in the output to the browser. Generally you'll only want to return 
apache.OK if you are writing your own handler.
