  i took an examply python program called afew and
edited it down to work for a very simple program
which i then took my other code and put it in that
directory structure to make sure i wasn't doing
anything strange, but i still ended up where 
running the program one way works and running it
the other way it seems to miss something important
which i don't understand.

  in order to get this far below i had to edit each
file and put a try: except: around each import
statment checking if the module could be found
like (as an example):

    import config as cfg
    import frog.config as cfg

this is very frustrating because the following makes 
no sense to me:

when i run the code within the directory like this i get:
=====  this works as it should
(env) me at ant(30)~/src/salsa/frog/frog$ python3 ngfp.py 
current_dir :  /home/me/src/salsa/frog/frog
(env) me at ant(31)~/src/salsa/frog/frog$ 

when i pack it up and then install it using (and then run it via 
the script):
===== it doesn't work, but the directory is the same...?????

  the paths are exactly the same when i print the current

  the png directory is there and the image is there.

  ugh, time to sleep...
