It really depends on what you are trying to do. You are not going to be
able to do what a full blown Apache module can do as mod_python doesn't
expose everything in the Apache API. You can still do various things

Thus, it all depends on what you want to do. You might like to describe
what you want to do and we may be able to give a better answer as to
whether it will be possible.
