OpenBSD, Apache and Python

P: n/a
Hi!

I'm wanting to use openbsd to run a webserver because of its high
security. The website is written in python. Before I was using linux
with apache 2 and mod_python and this worked well. My problem is that
mod_python 3.x does not work on apache 1 which is what comes with
openbsd (and has been hardened buy the openbsd guys). One option is to
use mod_python 2.x, but this has not seen any development since 2004.

I'm now looking at using fastcgi to run my python. This looks like it's
going to work fine, though I will be using a fcgi interface such as
http://jonpy.sourceforge.net/. There does not seem to be any official
fastcgi module for python.

Should I be worried about the stability and security of the python fcgi
interfaces? Is there something better (more mature / battle tested)?
Are there any other options available to me - considering that security
is very important?

Thanks for any help,

Geoff

Certainly: CGI. Performance does not seem to be an issue, so CGI should
work just fine.
