The readme wasn't malformed (per se) -- in fact, it was based off that
very template file. The issue was that the initial title did not
*exactly* match the title in the Plugin Name field in my php file. You
can run an older readme[1] through the validator[2], and it'll come out
clean as a whistle (save for known-missing sections).

That's a requirement to get the update service to match the plugin with
the right entry in SVN -- and that's not documented anywhere that I've
found (including the example readme).
