Hi Joseph

probably a better place to ask is the mod_python mailing list. (Or have you? :-) )

Maybe isn't in the PYTHONPATH that your handler sees. My experience
with Apache handlers is that you best set the PYTHONPATH in the environment
where you start the webserver. Using SetEnv between the Handler directives is
of (or always?) not enough.

HTH, good luck!
