There is a memory leak in apache.table().
from mod_python import apache
req.content_type = 'text/plain'
t = apache.make_table()
Using mpm-worker with StartServers 2, and 20000 requests results in memory consumption going from 1.2% to 9.3% per process. (ie approx 8k per request)
This will have an impact on FieldStorage which makes use of apache.make_table(), which is the deprecated name for apache.table()
