That with .htaccess might not be needed. mod_security is filtering every 
request to *.py and other extensions. But you're right it's a "plus" on 
security to disallow access using .htaccess.

Okay, it looks also good with the ./ but I follow your hints and change that 
to the 'Contents/' + className version. I think that might be the best way 
because I've declaratively configured the path in the apache configuration, 
when changing that I don't have to change the sources.

Sorry I haven't seen that I'm only replying to you (and not to the list)...
