perfect. please do that for debian packages too and let /usr for
official debian packages of Zope.

you can install only what you really need. for example debian as one
package for every Product not included in base Zope, so, if i want the
CMF i have only to do:

        apt-get install zope-cmfdefault

/opt and /var/opt is the right place. is a "software vendor"
and stuff from software vendors should gointo /opt.
