You seem to have misunderstood how 'import' works, I strongly
recommend re-reading the tutorial section:

Basically, the import statement has two forms:

   1. from <module> import <contents>
   2. import <module>

So your example of 'from <classname> import *' just doesn't make a lot
of sense within Python.

If contains two classes, MyClass and MyOtherClass, you
should be able to import them with:

   from MyClass import MyClass, MyOtherClass

However, you _should_ be already getting _everything_
contains as you're using the grab-all asterisk. Could you open a
python shell in your Module_Class folder, type 'from MyClass import
MyClass, MyOtherClass', and past whatever traceback you get here?
