Munin has also been dead for a couple of months, so we can't tell what
happened. Now I've restarted it, and let's hope it doesn't get killed.

We moved away from mod_python some time ago because it was causing other
problems and the Python / Django people seem to dislike it. From the
link you provided:

  Support for mod_python has been deprecated, and will be removed in
  Django 1.5. If you are configuring a new deployment, you are strongly
  encouraged to consider using mod_wsgi or any of the other supported

We should figure out if mod_wsgi provides a way to limit the maximum
memory used by the web application and restart it as needed. Apache does
this automatically for all in-process interpreters, such as mod_php.
