Write web apps in Python?

I'd like to make sure I understand what the options are to write web
applications in Python:

- à la PHP, using Apache's mod_python

- using eg. Lighttpd and configuring it to load the Python interpreter
every time a Python script is called (www.jakehilton.com/?q=node/54)

- long-running process, by compiling the Python script as a
stand-alone program that will then wait for queries on a port and
being called by the web server through eg. the WSGI

As for writing apps, I can either built it from scratch, or use
frameworks like Pylons, TurboGears, or Django.

Is this correct?

Thank you.
