Trouble creating a plugin.

What makes things stranger is that I can take one of the plugins from here that works, extract it, and rezip it, and it no longer works.
When I try to add a plugin in Preferences I get the following error:

Once I extracted the hello world directory and just zipped the __init__.py file up by itself, renamed the zip file helloworld_plugin.zip it added to calibre fine and it worked as advertised.
See attached image to see what you should see inside your zip file. The __init__.py file is at the top level and it works fine. When you are rezipping it you must be putting it inside a directory.
