I want to have the possibility to import any file from any other file:

<quote from your other answer>

parrot/
+-- __init__.py
+-- feeding/
    +-- __init__.py
    +-- eating.py
    +-- drinking.py
+-- fighting.py
+-- flying.py
+-- sleeping.py
+-- talking.py
import parrot  # loads parrot/__init__.py
import parrot.talking  # loads parrot/talking.py
from parrot import sleeping
import parrot.feeding
from parrot.feeding.eating import eat_cracker

</quote>

Instead of the above:
from sleeping import sleeping_in_a_bed
from eating   import eat_cracker

anything wrong with that (knowing I've no redundancy) ?

cheers,
Stef
