It should be picking up on new modules if you add them somewhere
on the Python path.  I just tried it by creating yyy.py in my Python
install's site-packages and it showed up in the auto-completion list
for 'import y|' (| is caret).  This worked both in the editor and
the Python Shell.

Is this not working for you?  If not, what Wing version is it?  Or is
it something else you're expecting to happen that is not working?
