[Zope] Another import doesn't find the module

Tom's solution has not worked. But he has offered me more help tomorrow 
to find a solution.

>>product that can instantiate itself (or subobjects) more than one way?

The product I am creating is more like an application. It has container 
objects at the top, and several subfolders that contain hundreds of 
objects that make up a 'record'. I guess you can say I have tons of 
data models to go in this application. 

My whole problem is trying to get things to instantiate more than one 
way. Once a user has created a record of type #1, he must have the 
ability to go back and add an extension of type A. In doing this, It 
alters the way type #1 initially existed. I can't force the user to 
create a record of tye #1 with the type A extension up front. If only 
it were that easy, I wouldn't be having such a pain.
