It was not my intention to be condescending; rather, I was attempting to be
in good humor and I apologize for the offense.  In fact, I had the exact
same problem with imports and namespaces only a few months ago.

If your object is still not accessible in the correct namespace, then the
next thing to check is to see if your code is executing under the
interpreter name that you think it should.    The example code that Jorey
Bump published will help you determine this.

I agree with you that doing an import once at server startup rather than at
each request seems like a cleaner way to go.  The only drawback is that if
you change the code in the imported module you'll have to re-start the
server but this usually isn't a problem for many applications.

I suppose I asked for an RTFM. Gosh it would be great to be as clever as
you. I'm in awe. No really, I mean how could I make such a stupid mistake?
Even the crassest beginner knows better than that.

I'll take the hint and unsubscribe, and leave this list to you clever
people. I hope you're happy together.
