That's because of mod_python's imp usage:

I don't think this is explicitly written into [1] the KForge Guide's 
(there is a section on plugins).

In general, for a plugin called 'myplugin' you will have a Python 
package 'kforge.plugin.myplugin', and you can enable it by registering 
it with the KForge domain model:

$ python
 >>> from kforge.soleInstance import application
 >>> application.registry.plugins.create('myplugin')

But you need to make sure the config is complete. (Currently, the 
information is recorded in the plugin doc string. But it isn't very nice 
to require users to read source files, so I'm sure it will change but 
there isn't an obvious place at the moment.) Does this work for you?
