[mod_python] The new module loader

Hey Graham,

I'm running into one problem related to taking things out of the
packages. I've imported PyServer.module_name in many places in my
modules but of course now PyServer no longer exists and all it's
modules are in the directory with pyserver.py which contains the
handler. I changed import PyServer.config to just import config, but
it doesn't find it.

I'm loathe to use absolute or even relative paths because of how many
different places I'd have to modify it. Is there some way to globally
add the handler's directory to the search path?
