I've just upgraded to mod_python 3.3.1 and it has broken my apps. I'm
having problems importing some modules, so before I punt and set

PythonOption mod_python.legacy.importer

I would like to know how to import a module that I built with f2py. Here's
what I used to do:

import _nrlib   # _nrlib.so lives in the same directory as the importing

That didn't work, so I tried

from mod_python import apache
_nrlib = apache.import_module('~/_nrlib.so')

mod_python finds the file, but I here's some of my traceback:

File "/cluster/stress/u308168/public_html/gflat/splines.py", line 3, in
    _nrlib = apache.import_module('~/_nrlib.so')

 line 296, in import_module
    log, import_path)

 line 680, in import_module
    execfile(file, module.__dict__)

  File "/cluster/stress/u308168/public_html/gflat/_nrlib.so", line 1

SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character '\x8c' in file
/cluster/stress/u308168/public_html/gflat/_nrlib.so on line 2, but no
encoding declared; see http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0263.html for details
(_nrlib.so, line 1)
