I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to do, but it looks like you're
writing your own static file handler.  In which case I think it will be
best just to let Apache serve up your files rather than using mod_python.
(Not to mention the security flaws in your sample code).

Anyway if what you really meant to do was to create a custom 404
error page, you should look at the Apache ErrorDocument directive:
