Confusing text in "Running a development server with mod_python"

There seems to be quite strange sentence in the first paragraph of the Running a development server with mod_python. See the last sentence:But don't do that on a production server, or we'll revoke your Django privileges.

This is probably related to rules on a hosting company the docs autor used some time ago and IMHO does not have anything to do here. Consider to remove it or change to neutral meaning - try maybe your hosting provider might revoke your privileges etc.

The comment refers to setting MaxRequestsPerChild to 1 in your Apache configuration to avoid having to restart the server.

This directive determines the number of requests that an Apache child process will handle before it dies; setting it to 1 will cause Apache to fork a new child process for every request (reloading everything), greatly degrading performance.

The comment about revoking your (fictitious) Django privileges is a humorous way of saying that doing this is a bad idea in a production environment.

Closing as invalid.
