Which version of mod_python are you using. If you are using 3.2.10 there
is support for hook functions to control how files are dealt with  
when uploaded.
See the documentation for details. If you search back through the  
list archive using search box on mod_python web site, you might find  
examples (not sure).

Note that this will not help you if you are using  
mod_python.publisher as you
don't have a means of intercepting form processing when using it.

Another option is to use an input filter to intercept large file  
uploads. Do a
search with Google for "mod_python tramline".

No. Search the mail archives for this topic as well, it just isn't  

Sorry for the curt response, Santa is coming and not much time. :-)
