I like using mod_python and XML-RPC. Develop the logic as a backend and 
then use a frontend to talk to that backend and to do whatever 
input/output processing needs to be done to make it all into a web app. 
I like that the frontend can actually be written in other languages as 
the situation requires and that in fact it doesn't even need to be a web 
app at all. I've written MPXMLRPC backends with PHP web-based frontends 
and wxPython frontends both. Pretty sweet.
