The results from running a script should NOT depend on the user

I agree with Matt that packaging up Blender functions is a good thing.
In fact, it is one of the next big steps for BPy.  However, the
correct way to do it is to factor out the code so it can be effectively
called from a script.

There are some other issues with the code as-is, but we will save that
discussion for the bpy list.
