Bummer, this used to work. Either Python no longer searches in current folder by default, or

I've modified the example so that it works again -- please update from SVN and try again.
Note that the EXTRA_PYTHONPATH variable python_helper.jam is transferred to Python first
time a python module is imported, and further changes to that variable have no effect.
If you're planning extensive use of Python, I'd recommend setting EXTRA_PYTHONPATH in
