No, in your environment (prefork) you can get semipersistent objects by 
creating them in modules that your published modules import, thereby 
taking advantage of module caching, but they won't be truly global. Your 
imported module should initialize the object and handle exceptions if 
you anticipate failures (I do this for database handles, which 
occassionally disappear).

If you need to use truly global values, you are going to have to look at 
pickling, file manipulation, or some kind of database.
