Location vs Directory in apache configuration

This is a documentation enhancement.
I installed everything properly for Django but mod_python just wouldnt respond properly. It turned out that the directory I was running in was outside the DocumentRoot directory structure (as I'm running several different websites), which according to the apache2 documentation means you should use the "Location" directive instead of "Directory".
This is documented in the logical place but a mention somewhere in Django might help someone else from spending 2 days running down blind alley ways. If you are connected to the mod_python folks please pass it along. There were no clues there either.
