Well I'm sorry, I thought I would ask on the list to see if anyone
had done this before and could give me an easy answer, shame on me. 
It turns out the documentation is very wrong.  this is the code that

print e.p
this outputs a dictionary in my test module.  

Apperntly this function returns a module object.  So I can infact us
it thus.  The reason I want this is so that I can have a directory
with configuration files for each page on my website.  Each page is
it's own object with certain relationships with other.
