No. Not with mod_python.

The closest you may get is to not use mod_python but use any WSGI
capable framework or toolkit. Then use mod_wsgi and specifically use
mod_wsgi daemon mode with a daemon process group per distinct user.
Then configure mod_wsgi to run that daemon process as that user. Then
use UNIX file system permissions to control access.
