I got the same problem, then quickly figured out that I forgot to create
an empty `__init.py__' file within the other files.

But the real reason of this reply is for reporting that the documented:

   Saving qotd application to qotd.tap...

lines are not given in response to calling `mktap'.  Besides that detail,
the example nicely works.  Instead of amending the documentation to
remove those two lines, maybe `mktap' could accept some `-v' option,
server generic, for producing them, and be an opened door for any later
other useful extra feedback?
