... before you go to all that trouble, make sure you are using mod_wsgi in 
daemon mode and not embedded mode. In daemon mode, the Python server (Django, 
NTLK, whatever) is run in a separate process, and Apache talks to it through 
sockets. It may not give you all the benefits of Emanuel's suggestions, but it 
will give you a significant part of them at a very small fraction of the effort.
