I cannot comment on relative imports as I never use them, but the absolute imports should work and do for me.  I just added to idlelib.idle_test a file containing 'from idlelib.idle_test import htest' and it works find.  The idlelib and idle_test files are not empty, but that should not make a difference.  In fact, many of the test_xyz modules already import from the non-test utility modules in the same directory.

The error messsage suggests that you did not put the top level package directory, 'sound', in a directory in sys.path, as you must.  What directory contains your sound package and what is your sys.path?  I suspect that this should be closed as 'not a bug'.
