I'm not sure why you get NotFound, but one thing I spotted is that
anything you want to publish in zope 2 must have a docstring.

Stating the obvious: have you at least verified that the server url is
correct?  You should be able to point your browser directly at 
http://localhost/plonesite/my_xmlrpc_instance .

also, I'm not familiar with xmlrpclib.Server.
The library docs only mention xmlrpclib.ServerProxy, afaict.
Presumably that's just a typo and you are using the standard
