Note that Zope does not use Python's normal import mechanism
to load the source file for "External Method"s.
One impact: you cannot use relative imports:

   Even if "nb_fetch.py" and "nb_parse.py" lie side by side in
   the same folder, "nb_fetch.py" cannot simple do
   an "import nb_parse" to access the other module.

If "nb_parse.py" is in a folder listed in PYTHONPATH,
the "import nb_parse" should succeed.

Change what?

If you change the source file of an "External Method" *AND*
you run your Zope in "development mode", then changes are
recognized automatically.

Chances in other Python modules (such as your "nb_parse" above)
require a Zope restart.
