Graham Dumpleton closed MODPYTHON-67:

> Make req.path_info writable.
> ----------------------------
>          Key: MODPYTHON-67
>          URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MODPYTHON-67
>      Project: mod_python
>         Type: New Feature
>   Components: core
>     Versions: 3.2.7
>     Reporter: Graham Dumpleton
>      Fix For: 3.2.7
>  Attachments: requestobject.c.diff
> In current version of mod_python req.filename is writable, but
> req.path_info isn't.
> If req.path_info were writable it would more easily allow a middleware
> stack to be implemented in mod_python. This is because a middleware
> component could modify req.path_info as necessary as the path info is
> progressively processed. This would be better than a middleware
> component having to create a parallel request attribute just for this
> purpose as by being able to change req.path_info existing handlers such
> as mod_python.publisher which already look at req.filename and
> req.path_info could still be utilised in various ways within the
> middleware stack. Same for any handlers which third parties may have
> developed. Thus would eliminate the need to copy existing handlers and
> modify them to get them to work, a middleware component would simply
> need to setup req.filename and req.path_info as appropriate and the
> existing handlers would work unmodified.
