You *have* to import the .pyd file. If this fails, then probably the .pyd
file has been compiled for a different Python version.

On Windows, a typical error message for this would be
>>> import whatever
Fatal Python error: PyThreadState_Get: no current thread

abnormal program termination

If you can't import te .pyd file because it's location isn't in sys.path,
then simply append the directory to sys.path.
