Or to avoid buffering in Python code and letting Apache buffering do
its thing instead use:

  def handler(req):
    for i in xrange(1000):
      req.write('Yeah\n, 0)
    return apache.OK

By default req.write() flushes data on each call, which using 'print'
with it would result in happening. Thus call req.write() directly and
supply second argument of 0 to avoid flushing.
