Well, I'm also running MoinMoin through mod_python (though I now  
should double check that that goes allright with my current setup).
But unless there's some clashing between mod_python & mod_wsgi, I  
wouldn't mind installing mod_wsgi for the Django part, while for the  
moment running MoinMoin through mod_python. I'll have a look at  
mod_wsgi then.
