OK, sorry for a basic Apache question, but how do I "add" a handler
without specifying what content type/extension it's going to handle
content for?

My module should be asked to handle every file under the <Location>,
regardless of extension or content type.  It will decide whether to
decline according to its own principles, not according to type.

I couldn't find any way to do this with mod_python.  With my C module,
it's not necessary -- I just put its custom configuration directives
within the <Location> block.  But mod_python has no analogous behavior
that I can see, and I can't tell how to say "use mod_python with these
params" without setting a handler.
