Python is a scripting language that compiles files as needed. You
don't need to declare every module you're using Run only the script
you need.

python main.py

When the script is run, the current directory is automatically added
to the python path, the list of directories python looks through for
modules (stored in sys.path). When python sees "import client", it
looks through that path for client.py and then compiles it if it's not
already been compiled.
