Bug Description

When an error occurs from mod_python on Saucy (which uses Apache 2.4) there is nothing logged. I have tracked this issue down to the value of APLOG_NOERRNO being incorrect. This value is defined to be (APLOG_LEVELMASK + 1); on Apache 2.2, APLOG_LEVELMASK was 7, but on Apache 2.4 it is 15. The value in mod_python's Python code (which sadly can't use the C definition in a direct manner) is hardcoded as 8, but for Apache 2.4 it needs to be updated to 16. This variable is defined in lib/python/mod_python/, and should be an easy fix. (FWIW, I have not experienced other issues so far with the mod_python 3.3.1 patches for Apache 2.4.) (Also, I will note that the 3.4 and now 3.5 of mod_python from upstream no longer even have this variable: it still exists for backwards-compatibility with old code, but it is defined as 0.)
