Because it means that python can find the modules. The pythonpath and
.pth files methods also allow python to find modules in that
directory. Otherwise, if ipython is run from a directory different to
the one which contains the module, python will not in general find the

Whether you can reload the module after that depends on whether it's
pure python.
