I'm not sure if that's comparable to a mod_python config or not. I'm
unfamiliar with mod_python at this point, but it seems like the mod_python
engine is called by the .htaccess file that I put in the wiki directory I
created under my virtual host's root directory.

It also appears that to use mod_python requires different approaches
depending on whether or not you're using a "broken" mod_python (which I am
judging by the version number in Debian's testing tree).

Another question, I suppose, is whether or not mod_python is really
necessary on a lightly used MoinMoin instance. It looks like a standard cgi
approach is easier to set up.
