Take out all the "import __main__" statements and you should be fine.

Python lets you access two namespaces at once: the "local" namespace and
the "global" namespace.  Were it not for the global namespace, you would
need to do something like "import __main__".  But since globals are
there, everything available at the module level is also available at the
function level.
