The fixup handler is probably the more elegant way to handle database
I suppose that this connexion (or pool of such objects) will "survive"
(kept alive) between successive requests?
you suggest to cache them in the request object: do you mean like its
usually done with session id, added to all successif url or in hidden
field? or should I add their reference  in the request object during
fixup handler execution time?

from PythonHandler family, PythonInitHandler seems to be an other one 
appropriate for this job, is it ?

To avoid to me any mis-understanding, the long-live connexion object 
will reside as a global module variable ? may be that why "interpretter" 
is usually montionned in PythonImport" threads: the globals will survive 
because the python process is the same one and is never stoped by apache?
