for a more global effect, try instead: 

	import sys
	if projectType == 'phys' :
		import physModule
		sys.modules['theModule'] = physModule
	else:
		import logicModule
		sys.modules['theModule'] = logicModule



and then anywhere, you can do:

	import theModule 

or 

	from theModule import *



import will find 'theModule' in the cache and it won't look for
a file of that name.
