 From what's new in Apache 2.2.

   Monitor hook added
     Monitor hook enables modules to run regular/scheduled jobs in  
the parent (root) process.

It doesn't sound like something we would want specific mod_python  
for anyway given that it runs in parent process and mod_python doesn't
provide really low level access to Apache API.

I assumed that they wanted to run some other module that used the  
and not that there was any expectation that mod_python would support it
in some way.

True, the 3.2.x branch would be a much better idea. My head isn't  
clear today
either. Left work middle of day to go home and rest. :-(

Time to go have a snooze. :-)
