No, myBaseClass exists in file1.py.   The question is how can I tell
file2.py that the global variable is in file1 (without doing a silly
file1.myBaseClass....

Since I am invoking file2 from file1, I would have thought that global
variables in file1 exists automatically....(too much C thinking, I know)
