I've drilled down into the Python import statement. It's
in ScriptInterpreterPython::LoadScriptingModule. The function inserts the
diretory into sys.path and then issues a vanilla Python import statement.
I spoke with one of our local Python experts who said that this technique
to specify the directory is probably unreliable, as the rules for where
Python looks for modules has evolved. The rules for both relative and
absolute module paths changed from Python 2 to 3.
I'll revert the xfail if you want. But this has been broken for quite a
while (as has another test, which I'm looking into now).
