I need to get the big picture about the different solutions to run a
Python web application.

CGI : original method. Slow because the server has to spawn a new
process to run the interpreter + script every time a script is run.
mod_python : Apache module alternative to CGI. The interpreter is
loaded once, and running a script means just handling the script
mod_wsgi : mod_python is no longer developped, and mod_wsgi is its new
FastCGI and SCGI: Faster alternativees to CGI; Run as independent
programs, and communicate with the web server through either a Unix
socket (located on the same host) or a TCP socket (remote host)
Is this correct?
