google appengine python sdk startup problems

if you have any google eggs in your system (like protobuf for example) and you are trying to start the google appengine sdk you will get a "could not find version file" error. this is mainly caused by coding outside python peps guidelines (more exactly, package namespaces) and some more bad coding style.

I reported this bug just after last year's christmas but I guess the appengine has so many bugs they are busy with something else more important :-P

I gave detailed infos on the appengine bugtracker. The patch that fixes the problem is also available here.

if the live appengine is written the same way ...
i wish you happy hacking.
