FFR, this isn't CGI.

You can assign different handlers to different extensions like this:

   AddHandler mod_python .py .psp
   PythonHandler mod_python.publisher | .py
   PythonHandler mod_python.psp | .psp

You can also configure this on a per Directory or Location basis, which, 
when combined with SetHandler instead of AddHandler, allows you to strip 
the extensions from your URL (probably more useful for Publisher than PSP).
