FWIW, I've been converting my python webapps under apache22 from
mod_python to mod_wsgi.   I've found mod_python to be a real pain to get
working on some Solaris installs and mod_wsgi to be much easier to
configure and tweak.   This includes Trac and Pylons-based webapps.

Here's a blurb from the Trac folks:


and here's the author's docs on mod_wsgi integration with Trac:


The latter is filled with good info on variations you can use.

Having said that, here's my config from a box I haven't yet converted
from mod_python; I used ports for Apache, Trac, Python, SVN, ...
