jython __init__.py and jar files

I was trying to run an example from the Jython Essentials book but kept getting
an error saying:

java package 'org.jdom.input' has no attribute 'SAXBuilder'

Apparently, it couldn't find the SAXBuilder class, even though I
had set the sys.path to the jar and it seemed to be finding the jar.

Eventually I extracted the files from the jar, but it still wasn't finding
the SAXBuilder class. Then I added __init__.py files to the 'org', 'jdom' and
'input' dirs and wallah!, everything works.

This leads me to a rather odd conclusion:

A real Java jar isn't going to work for Jython because it won't have __init__

Has anyone else run into this? Is my conclusion correct or am I missing
