Just note that the 'python-path' option to WSGIDaemonProcess only
exists for mod_wsgi 2.0, so use the 2.0 release candidate rather than
1.3. The 'python-path' option is a bit more intelligent than just
setting PYTHONPATH as it it will open up '.pth' files and process
them. Ie., it actually calls site.addsitedir(). In 2.0 the
WSGIPythonPath directive does the same thing for when running
application in embedded mode. In 1.3, WSGIPythonPath behaved just like
PYTHONPATH and thus wouldn't do what you probably want. In other
words, better to use 2.0.
