Try weblib! :)

http://weblib.sourceforge.net/


for:  http://whatever/yourscript?select=cat&select=dog

you'd do:

#################
#!/usr/bin/python

import weblib.script

print weblib.request["select"], "<HR>"   # prints "cat"
print weblib.request.query["select"]     # prints ('cat', 'dog')

#################


Cheers,
