mod_python: 404 on *.py when trying to download the file

I had mod_python enabled and it would give me 404 on random python scripts in downloads directory (not cgi)…
Nothing in error log either!

Here is the fix:

put .htaccess file in the download directory with following contents:

<Files *.py>
    RemoveHandler .py
    AddType text/plain .py
    SetHandler none
    SetHandler default-handler
    Options -ExecCGI
