Can't you just install apache2 (separate package from apache)?  
Nevermind, it is still only in unstable.

mod_python 3.1 does only work on Apache 2.  I usually take apache out 
and build it myself, along with mod_python and svn.  I think the major 
'reconfiguration' either way you go is just copying out the revelant 
bits of httpd.conf into the new httd.conf

Yes, unstable is before testing.  I think it is an acceptable risk, 
assuming that brutus is what we say it is: an unstable box :)
