Web apps can have bindings for more than 1 interface. But mod_python
is obsolete for many years now. All python web apps support wsgi now.
Trac does too: http://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracModWSGI

Yes, we should build mod_wsgi and drop mod_python entirely. I'm
thinking we could have 1 package for 2.6 mod_wsgi and 1 package for
2.7 mod_wsgi, the two packages incompatible with each other, since you
can only load one at a time.

Or use alternatives ‒ whichever options looks better to you.
