The "Python Scripts" which you edit through the web have severe
security restrictions on what you're allowed to import.

You can:

1) use an External Method - import anything


2) write a Zope Product wrapper around your python module,
providing an interface which any Zope object (python script, 
dtml pages, etc) can use to call your code.

#2 is a lot more work, but very flexible in the long run.
