I think I know what Mr. Dfjsd is getting at; I hit this same problem.

If you're building an app in c:\webapp, and you run twistd from that 
directory, then 'c:\webapp' should be part of sys.path.  The reason for 
this is that '.' is part of sys.path, and if you're running twistd in 
c:\webapp, then '.' == 'c:\webapp'.  So, if:

   c:\webapp\docroot contains your HTML files and RPY files
   c:\webapp\my_app contains any Python code you need to import

...and you run:

   c:\webapp> mktap web --path docroot
   c:\webapp> twistd -f web.tap

...if you have a .rpy in c:\webapp\docroot, it can call 'import my_app' and 
it should work fine.  (Provided c:\webapp\my_app\__init__.py exists.)

Does that answer your question?
