[mod_python] mod_python and importing cheetah templates

Hi all,

I have a directory structure as such:


In dir1/templates I store cheetah templates which are compiled with  
cheetah-compile into python files.

dir1/main.py is a file that looks at a req.filename and decides to  
load a python module.

So when a request comes for dir1/templates/something.py - it is  
imported and its respond() method is called.

So far so good. However, if something.py is trying to use Cheetah's  
#import <module>, its search path appears to be dir1/ and not dir1/ 
templates where something.py lives. I can see why this might be but  
how do I go about fixing it?
