[mod_python] Mailman HTML templates to include PSP

Use Apache SSI:


You could do it in two ways. First is to include PSP chunk output into
static HTML files using SSI. Second is to ditch PSP and use Python
code snippets direct in the static HTML file and produce equivalent
HTML on the fly from there.

You will need mod_python 3.3 for the latter though. You don't specify
which version of mod_python you are using.
