Thanks. The mod_python I am currently running was probably installed 
when Apache 2.0.48 was current, so I'll definitely need an upgrade. I 
had previously thought that there was a distinct cutover point where 
mod_python stopped working in 2.0, so I'm happy to know this isn't the 
case (though I've been bitten before with Apache module inconsistency 
problems: for 2.0, at least on Windows, ISTR that modules had to be 
compiled for the exact Apache version in use - but that *was* a long 
time ago, so I may be suffering from CRS).

Anyway, you've encouraged me to be more adventurous!
