Sure, it's just a mod_python handler, you can use it or not use it.

This is a question of taste. I don't like code embedded in HTML either,
but some people can't live without it. I explain my feeling towards it
that I learned programming before HTML existed, whereas for some people
start out with HTML and then develop a need for dynamic content, so to
them it seems natural that the code should live inside HTML. Anyway, it's
just a theory, but I think we've decided that mod_python will cater to
both camps.

It's a good point, and I think it'd be a good idea to provide all those
things, but this being a volunteer effort, it will take time.
