calling django auth from apache RewriteMap

I'm interested in using RewriteMap (from mod_rewrite) to check for a
django user session. That is, RewriteMap would invoke some script
which would return session info, which could be used by mod_rewrite to
allow or deny access. Basically, this would require writing a
standalone python script that returns session information about a
request. E.g. apache would write the session credentials (sessionid
cookie?) to the script stdin, and the script would return information
about the session (e.g. whether logged in, group membership, or etc.).

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I need to know what
information django requires to validate a request (look up a session),
and what methods I could use to invoke it standalone.
