Many frameworks session system's can be used completely independently
of the framework. Myghty's has been used in various scenarios partly
as it works without a problem in mod_python, WSGI, etc. and has a
consistent interface across any of the environments.
Ian Bicking wrote a WSGI session middleware module that handles
sessions completely independently of any framework, though I'm not
sure offhand how that'd work with mod_python.
I won't be surprised to see other framework authors offer advice on
how to use their respective session object outside of their
framework, as they're typically modular enough to function in this
manner. Most of them provide a dict-style interface, some use
attributes, etc. In the end, I think you'll have enough choices where
you can sift it out and find the one that works best for you.
