I did think about it but deferred the idea in preference to at least
getting some basic support for use of Python code with SSI in place.
In other words, to take this initial step and then see whether people
even consider using server side includes a viable way of doing stuff.
These days there is so much focus on full blown frameworks that I am
not sure that SSI even gets used much. I could well be wrong on that
point.

Do you have examples of SSI tag handlers that you might implement this
way if such a feature were available? I ask as it all good to speculate
on such a feature, but like this generic "#python" tag, would it in
itself be used either?
