Here's what I do to import modules from the current directory into

    ipy1_remote_controller.executeAll( 'import site' )
    ipy1_remote_controller.executeAll( 'site.addsitedir( ' + `os.getcwd()` + ' )' )
    ipy1_remote_controller.executeAll( 'import themodule; reload( themodule )' )

The reload is important so that if you modify the code, the most recent
version gets used.
