> --------------------------------------------------
>          Key: MODPYTHON-7
>          URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MODPYTHON-7
>      Project: mod_python
>         Type: Improvement
>     Versions: 3.1.3

>     Priority: Minor
>      Fix For: 3.2.7

> The apache.import_module() method only reloads a Python module if the modification time
of the file on disk is newer. This means that if one restores an old version of a file from
backup, eg., by using "mv" command from another location, it will not reload it and it is
necessary to touch the file or restart Apache.
> The check in apache.py, instead of being just:
>   if mtime > oldmtime:
> could perhaps be:
>   if mtime != oldmtime:
> I don't believe this would cause any wider issues, but might be due some thought first.
> The various settings of mtime and oldmtime above that in the code, ie., to 0 or 1, will
also have to be reviewed to ensure this change doesn't break anything.
