[Zope] site-packages

Hi all.

I'm building a webfilter in python. My first option for server was 
Apache+mod_snake, but after a while that felt kind of shaky. 

So now I've been reading up on Zope for a couple of days. I haven't been
able to find the solution for a problem that must be very common.

I have an external method in the root folder linked to a script looking like 

def hello(self, REQUEST):
    return 'Hello %s' % user

Works great.

Then I have another another external method linked to a script looking like 

import testmodule

def hello(self):
    return 'Hello %s' % testmodule.value

Doesn't work at all.
Just gives me:

Error Type: ImportError
Error Value: No module named testmodule

The module testmodule is in the site-packages of my python installation.
and importing it from any normal python program is no problem.

What's the deal here?
