Please allow myself to introduce ... myself. I'm Todd and I'm in love 
with python. I'm a newbie so please excuse me if the answer to my woes 
is obvious.

I'm setting up an environment for my first mod_python project. It's a 
radio-pharmacy manager (not redhat package manager) which lives at /rpm 
on my file system. The following code raises the exception: 
"ImportError: No module named RPM."

in httpd.conf, i have:
PythonPath "sys.path+['/rpm/lib']"

the code:
from mod_python import apache, psp
from RPM import database

def index(req, result='success'):
         template = psp.PSP(req, filename='test.html')

Why can I do the following on the command line without an exception 
being raised?
