Pass, unfortuately. This is work, and I have very little experience
with python itself. I was merely tasked with getting some more
software on this other platform, and the requirements (besides apache
and python itself) included mod_python. I have no real idea what's
actually going to be using it.

I'll pass the question on the the relevant parties to see if this will suffice.

I'll wait and see if anyone else replies to this thread.

Once again, thanks for taking the trouble to reply.
