Only for example. Could be omitted.

Exactly.

[Good advice snipped]

It's strange, but I really was not in trouble with all this stuff
until I'll tried to invoke 'deeper' modules from their directory
level.
After sleeping an additional night about my subject, I recognized that
I've done something substantial wrong, belonging to the "art" of
Python'ing. I'll correct this in the next release.
My organizational structure of the project was based essentially on my
strong C/C++ background and thererfore some mistakes had taken place.

Ciao, Georg
