There are several issues you need to consider: first if there's a .pyc 
file it will use that in favor of a .py file (actually it will look for 
the last update date, so it might use your os.py after all, it rather 
depends), second the os.py file includes a C module that contains the 
actual code, it is merely a wrapper for that C module. Third I think you 
had problems with os.path, which is in yet another module I assume. And 
perhaps there are more issues which slip my mind right now ;)

Cool, I'll check it out!

I may be very wrong here, but as far as I know the os.py(c) module in 
the installation is a wrapper for some PythonCE specific C module, there 
*is* an os.py, but all the functionality is in the C file.
