[CentralOH] Python vs. Apache

I want to do some server side programming in Python for my Apache
server.  From what I've seen there are a bunch of different ways to do
it.

CGI
mod_python
mod_wsgi / fastcgi or fcgi / wsgiref
wsgiref
???

Is there a 'preferred' method?  Is there a document that compares
various approaches?

I understand the limitations of pure CGI as Python has to be started for
every request.

At this point, I'm looking to do the programming in Python so I'm not
considering a Python-based web framework.
