You can add this in your httpd.conf

	<Files *>
		PythonPath "sys.path + ['/path/to/my/hidden/modules']"

And store your code in this path (/path/to/my/hidden/modules). 

You can also add a .htaccess  file in all the directories you don't want
Apache to display the content. Put these lines in .htaccess :

Order Allow,Deny
Deny from All
