Webware's mod_webkit is faster than Webware's ModPythonAdapter -- but 
in both cases your servlets are executed in the Webware process.

If you write mod_python code (i.e., don't use servlets) then the 
performance may be better.  There won't be the overhead of Apache 
connecting to a separate process, as you have with Webware.

To run code in the Apache process using mod_python you either have to 
code for mod_python directly (per the documentation on modpython.org), 
or you have to use a framework that specifically supports it (like 
Spyce).  I discouraged use of ModPythonAdapter in the Webware 
documentation because it's confusing -- it doesn't utilize mod_python 
in any interesting way.
