I seem to have got it working, but I'm not sure why.
If I run the python interpreter in the same folder as my module, then doing;
works fine, and I'm able to call all the methods in mymodule.py
If I create a folder called mymodule under site-packages, then the above
doesn't work *unless* I do;
from mymodule import *
I'm not seeing the distinction between the two situations - was naming
the folder the same as the python file a mistake perhaps?
