get list of callable methods

You could check to see if the module's source file matches the
function's source file:

# returns 
#  True if func was defined in mod's file, 
#  False if not _or_ if source file isn't known

def f_defined_by_module(func, mod):
    return func.func_code.co_filename == mod.__file__
    return False

# Return functions defined in mod
def module_defined_functions(mod):
  return [f for f in mod.__dict__.itervalues() if callable(f) and \
    f_defined_by_module(f, mod)]

But then again, there are plenty of ways to create modules or
functions that don't even have a source file...
