Simple python cgi question

I don't want report lab since I'll be using lilypond to generate the 
pdfs (I mentioned that I'd be calling the pdf generating program from 
python).

What I needed to know was how to upload a file, really. I thought it 
might be trivial, but maybe not so ...

I'll have to give the mod_python docs some study.
