[mod_python] PythonImport: Can someone please draw a diagramfor this idiot?

It depends.  When using the winnt MPM module, you get one process (and thus
one interpreter) per vhost; requests are handled by threads.  I've never had
Apache spawn a new child on me, so my PythonImport module persists as long
as the server stays up.

As far as I can tell, PythonImport doesn't provide any more persistence for
dynamically created objects or globals than simply importing the module
directly in a published module. The documentation implies that this
directive is mainly useful for initializing time consuming tasks before the
first request. But isn't that only true directly after (re)starting apache?
Isn't it the case that subsequent requests cause apache to spawn more
children, thus reintroducing the delay for the first request in that child
