Thanks, Graham. Sorry I didn't respond -- it's crunch time here, so I
was pulled off the project for a couple days to help with something
else. I just didn't have time to catch up.

In the end, we decided to convert everything from mod_python to CGI,
which ended up getting us the functionality we were looking for. For
development, MaxRequestsPerChild was already set to 1, but this didn't
solve any of the variable caching issues.
