Please forgive me, but I am still unclear.
Do you mean that I must add a file called __ini__.py to my folder or do 
you mean that each file that I wish to import should have that statement 
[ __init__.py ] immediately after (I presume) my def statement?
If it must be a file, what is in this file?
With many thanks,
