Wasn't this kind of stuff why publisher was designed in the first place? 
I remember having a dialog with Grisha about similar topics, and his 
reply essentially being "Most of the web stuff I do uses CGI" :)

I'd be using bleeding edge mod_python if I could persuade myself to 
upgrade to Apache 2.2. In my environment it's not that easy. IIRC I had 
to install Apache-with-SSL and then install Apache-without-SSL over it 
to get the working installation I have today. Windows can be a real pain.
