[wsgi] Python interpreter initialization

I need some help for the development of mod_wsgi.
Before using the Python C API for embedding Python code, the main
interpreter must be initialized by calling
This function set a global context.
In the first version of the code, I'm initializing the interpreter in
the init main configuration callback (and only here).
It is possible to customize the Python interpreter by setting some
options before calling Py_Initialize.
These options are available as nginx commands in the main context only.
In the request handler I have added a call to the function
Py_IsInitialized(), just to be sure.
I'm assuming that the main configuration is initialized in the core
nginx process and that each one of the worker process simply inherit the
Python interpreter context.
What happens on Windows (where fork is not available)?
Should I call Py_Initialize in the init process callback, too (calling
Py_Initialize two times is a no op).
Thanks Manlio Perillo
