I would suggest you have a look at Vampire and mpservlets to begin
with. These show different ways of building different URL dispatchers
on top of basic mod_python handler mechanism.

These aren't end user applications in themselves though. For an
example of an application which hosts on top of mod_python, you
might look at Trac. I think though that it perhaps just uses mod_python
as a jump off point and isn't really closely bound in with mod_python.
I'm not sure I know of any application available which truly melds
real close with mod_python/Apache.

For something quite different, you might also look at Tramline. This
isn't a content producer in itself, but is a good example of using the
mod_python input/output filters in mod_python.

The URLs for these packages are:
