This is not a good idea!

The source of an "External Method" can be read arbitrarily often --
and each time, you extend "sys.path"...

The "imp" module allows you to import modules without the need
to modify "path".

That's typical Python behaviour:

  Python does not recognize at runtime when a module source has
  changed.

  It provides however a builtin "reload" which you can use
  to explicitely reload a module.

  Be warned the "reload" is dangerous. Funny effects can happen.


As someone else suggested, restarting Zope is the safest way
(although not the fasted one).
