This form of import should work.  It could be you need to add the directory
that contains wiki20 to your Python Path in Project Properties.  It's also
possible the DBSession object is opaque to our static code analyzer for
some reason.  If adding to the path doesn't help, try typing "DBSession."
and then submitting a bug report from Wing's Help menu with the error log

Also, I'm assuming you're using Wing 3.1.4; if not, you want want to try
upgrading also.
