I'm guessing this is abnormal behavior that's on WinXP only? I on winXP have
tried setting multiple environment variables to include a project path, but
imports did not work. The only way I could add a path to python's import
paths on winXP was to edit the registry.

If PYTHONPATH being set in windowsXP doesn't seem to have any effect (Like
it doesn't seem to work for me ) the only fix I found was a registry edit.
At the path: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Python\PythonCore\2.5\PythonPath create a new
key, ie: 'project1', create a new value, name=(Default),
value='c:\data\path\to\project'

( I don't know much about version control, it's something I'm looking into.
) A term to search, maybe you're looking for is 'clone' or 'branch'.

If you meant to search for differnt code versioning programs, here's some:
Mercurial ( http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/ ), Subversion (
http://subversion.tigris.org/ ), TortoiseSVN ( http://tortoisesvn.net/ )

Hope that helps :P
