For posterity, I searched high and low to try and figure out how to
add empty directories to a zip file using python's zipfile library.
This aspect seems woefully undocumented.

I found only a couple of references. The following explained it succinctly.

http://hiparrot.wordpress.com/2005/12/05/writing-an-empty-directory-into-a-zipfile/

To cut a long story short, you need to formulate it as such.

ZipFile.writestr(ZipInfo(directoryname+"/"),"")

I'll try and address the other niggly bits of your feedback when I get a chance.
