... and of course you need to give correct --config-dir and --wiki-url

Python does not care at all where you put that, but it must be able to 
locate it - this is what the --config-dir is for.

As you did not tell it otherwise using --config-dir, it only searches 
the standard python sys.path (which will only find some standard python 
stuff, but not your config).
