Thanks for the reply Jim.

I assumed it was possible from this article by Gregory Trubetskoy:


"A mod_python connection handler leverages [..] Apache server facilities
such as logging."

If there is no modpy specific way of doing it, is there a generic
approach in apache to capture stdout from a script?
