No need to freak out.  Per the original discussions of psp
it will be seperate enough so you can use the psp stuff in
a regular CGI or even to generate text offline altogether.

This would lend it to being generic enough that the same
hooks it uses could be used by any other templating engine.
IMO the reason psp was folded into mod_python and not
something else is just that the guy who did psp was willing
to put in some time and many people (mostly noobs) expect
a php-alike with thier mod_whatever.

So it solved a couple minor problems without adding any new
ones. No big deal or conspiracy here.
