Do you know about and use the PythonEnablePdb directive? You do need
to be able to run "httpd" manually with '-X -DONE_PROCESS' command line
options, but in worst case scenario it is sometimes useful.

Besides that, I personally just tend to use apache.log_error() a lot.  
Some times
I go to the extent of adding log messages into C code of mod_python,  
but then
I am working with the same low level C code a lot to fix issues or  
add new features
to mod_python itself. :-)
