there are 2.

PyApache is CGI-compatible out of the box, but is not noticeably
faster than using straight CGI because it creates and shuts down
a python interpreter for each individual http request.

httpdapy is not cgi-compatible, but it is pretty easy to use
and it is much faster then cgi/pyapache since it keeps
the python interpreter around. it is in this sense more
equivalent to mod_perl functionality.
