Well, i will probably use more than one .py file... I dont want to
copy all the configuration on each file...
Besides, i work with 5 other developers, each one with their own
virtual server and having to configurate every developer enviroment
seems too much trouble to maintain..

Well, i could import my CFG file inside the function, that would make
the request available (i think :-))... i just wanted to know if there
was any other way to do it.

The fact is that im coming from php where i had a global cfg file for
all the url configurations.. All i want with that is to have a config
file that will get the urls (and others variables) needed so no one
has to worry about that.

Re-reading my post, i saw that i wasnt clear enough :-)
Thanks for you answers and your patience with my 'english' :-)
