[mod_python] WPS 1.0.0 problem with KVP

Hi to all

I am programming an OGC's Web Processing Service (WPS) 1.0.0 ,  and  
this standard defines a KVP like this:

http://foo.bar/foo?
   request=Execute&
   service=WPS&
   version=1.0.0&
   language=en-CA&
   Identifier=Buffer&
   [email protected]:href=http://foo.bar/foo;BufferDistance=10&
   ResponseDocument=BufferedPolygon&
   StoreExecuteResponse=true


The DataInputs contains several inputs separated by ";" and attribute 
information separated by "@", in my case my Datainput is like this:

DataInputs=Input1=100;Input2=200

I then use util.FieldStorage(Request) to get the KVP but this class 
doesn't split the request by the & but associates the key-values with 
the  =, so in the end I will have a dictionary like this:

{'DataInputs': [Field('DataInputs', 'Input1=10'0)], 'Input2': 
[Field('Input2', '200')]}

Basically Input2=10 is recognizes as another KVP and not a value from 
DataInputs, I need something like this:

{'DataInputs': [Field('DataInputs', 'Input1=10;Input2=200')]}

I read the API documentation and I cant find a proper solution for the 
problem, maybe to use a filter with some regular expression that would 
change de = from the DataInput

Any suggestions/help

Thanks
Jorge
